Shark Valley - Everglades Natl Park

On Sat the adventurous parts of the So Fla clan finally made a much overdo trek to Shark Valley located in the northern part of Everglades National Park. If you have taken one of the Everglades air boat tours and left feeling short changed on the number of gators you saw, this maybe the place for you!

Its also got lots of tropical plan life..


And some beautiful birds...



But its the gators that leave you in awe~


in the water..



on the land..


Yikes, blocking the trail your walking down!!

and lurking everywhere in between!

It was a fun time for all.
The kids did a great job walking, listening and enjoying nature.

Thanks for heading up the adventure SWM!
