Lake Louisa State Park 2

We saw ferns growing along the nature trail - We see ferns throughout Central Florida.

Versatile - Huh?  Lake Louisa State has 4500 acres, six lakes, two streams, 11 natural communities, and 105 acres of lake shoreline.

 This is Green Swamp.    The state park is located in the northeast corner of the Green Swamp, a vast wetland in Central Florida - Lake Louisa is the largest in a chain of 13 lakes connected by the Palatlakakah River.

In the past 10,000 years, several Native American cultures have lived here.  In 1823, this land was designated as part of the Seminole reservation.



It's getting hot but Tippy is eager to keep going - to see what's around the next curve in the trail.

I have to admit - Tippy is right about trails - they are the very definition of adventure.

Tippy thinks the bobcat is pretty scary - much like the alligator. 

 Deer Moss is one of the most beautiful natural ground covers that I have seen.

Tomorrow, we will hit the campground and checkout their facilities  - we may want to camp here this winter.

Ron, Tippy and Treky
