Florida Day 6

Florida Day 6

On day 6 of our Florida vacation we decided to return to the Circle B Bar Preserve in Lakeland Florida.  It is a huge place and we did not cover much of the preserve during our first visit. The following are various scenes from our hike on the preserve.

Please click on the photos for a larger image.


There was some early morning fog when we first arrived.


The spanish moss covering the trees is gorgeous.


One of the ponds with the fog and sunlight.


A gator swimming in the lake.



I loved the shape of the trees and the pretty spanish moss. If you are ever in the area I would highly recommend visiting the Circle B Bar Preserve.

    my mind :D
