For a girl who’s afraid of unpredictable wild animals, exploring the depths of the Everglades National Park–with its thousands of alligators–was not too exciting a prospect.
Especially when my husband thinks wading around and kayaking with them is a good idea.
But we survived. We saw a couple dozen gators and we didn’t get eaten. Accomplishment enough for me. But Cole wasn’t quite satisfied so we also hiked, went slough-slogging (well, Cole did), kayaked, took pictures, shared a campground with a million mosquitoes, dodged the rain, joined a few ranger programs, and learned a lot about this precious slice of the National Park Service down in southern Florida.
Enjoy a few clips of our adventure.
