The Everglades are way unlike any other National park. This subtropical wilderness is a fascinating place. It was unfortunate that damage from hurricanes Katrina and Wilma so damaged the park's Flamingo Visitor Center and its trails. We were fortunate, however, that we hit the park during the dry season when the wildlife concentrate in smaller, wet areas where we could see them.

Sadly, and like so many ecosystems, the Everglades is in great danger, in this case due to water being drawn off for agriculture and the myriad of housing developments in that part of the state.
