Number 24: Everglades Sunrise

Everglades Sunrise

Karen and I got a new cell phone, and part of the deal was free airline tickets.  It sounded like a good deal at the time because we both needed new cell phones.  Well, we thought about it long and hard and after our first two choices were on black-out dates we ended up taking a flight to Miami.  Slight problem it was a flight from Oklahoma to Michigan to Florida.  It took roughly 12 hours, and by the time we got there it was 2:00 in the morning.  Instead of paying for a hotel room for 8 hours we decided to drive down to the Everglades, since it is upon 24 hours.  By the time we ate at a Denny’s in the southern part of Miami we made it to the Everglades around 5:00am.

That Everglades sunrise was beautiful, mist was forming with the rising sun, and to see the birds and alligators was like walking back in time.  Karen and I walked around the Anhinga trail, and we were both amazed, but by the time we were done with the trail Karen was not feeling well.  She ended up sleeping for the rest of the time we were in the Everglades, but we both will not forget the very early morning stroll in the national park.
