Shark Valley Everglades National Park

For today's ride we packed the bikes up in the rental minivan and went out to Shark Valley Everglades National Park.   There is a 15 mile loop through the Everglades there that you can ride on.   So we did just that, and saw a lot of amazing wildlife along the way.

Birds (no I don't know what kind)

Juvenile alligators

Adult alligators

Teen Alligators

Another kind of bird, check out the yellow feet!

Mama alligator

Rigght to her right about a dozen baby alligators

The tram, it's 25 bucks a head to take the tram out to the observation tower.

An adult alligator in a kid sized pool, I told it that it was too big for the kiddie pool.

On the other side of the road was this one in another smallish pool, just the eyes were above the waterline.

These purple flowers were all over, this one has some sort of a bee in it.

Trees bleached white, not sure what causes this.

All in all a very interesting ride, I had never been to the Everglades before, it's truly a different world.
