Rick's Road Trip Sat Oct 18 to Mon Oct 20

Next Day

Sat: Left Key West and drove to Florida city(near entrance to Everglades).
Sun: Visited the southern part of the Everglades. Drove to the Flamingo visitor center, about 50 miles from the main entrance. I stopped at all the points of interest along the way. It was interesting that I had to go over a pass along this road(see photo). As you can see from the photos, the "hiking trails" were my kind. Flat. No gators but saw several birds and other wildlife. I didn't know what to expect of the Everglades so that made it interesting. On Mon drove thru the northern part of the Everglades. Pretty much like the rest of the area. I stopped near Everglades city to take an airboat ride. Finally saw a gator. Visiting the Everglades and no gaters, it would have sucked big time. After the Everglades I drove to Sanibel Island. I hope to spend Tues getting some sun on the beach.
