I went to Myakka River State Park near Sarasota, FL back in Dec 2013 and posted about it. I just visited again and it was lovely to visit at a different time of year, but my photos are for the most part the same subjects... epiphytes, lichen, and weathered trees are the beauties at Myakka. And of course, their wonderful canopy walk that provides a gorgeous view and close looks at the blooming air plants.
After my craft show in Sarasota, I stopped by Myakka River State Park on my way home. What an awesome place! They have built a walkway through a canopy and a tower that goes above the canopy and overlooks the entire park with a 360 view. The place is filled with beautiful air plants and lichen painting the trees. This park must have the best air! Sights seen included many birds, alligators, a few deer, and a large turtle crossing the street. I strongly suggest a visit to this park.
