I have spent so many hours standing on the boardwalk going across the lily pond, taking photos of water lilies, lily pads, cannas and irises, rice plants, reflections, and ripples. What intrigues me in this area is the River of Grass that you see beyond the lily pond. This was planted to educate visitors about the river of grass that makes up the Everglades. The next photo was taken along the Tamiami Trail (going from Tampa to Miami) as the sun was rising across the grasslands of the Everglades.
It as been a while since I went to the Everglades in the early morning – I’m thinking it would be a safe excursion I would like to take sometime in the next couple of weeks. The longer I wait, the earlier I will have to get up to make the drive in the dark to meet the rising sun.
