This was my second time out here. If you haven't been, let's just say it's a pretty incredible experience... good and bad. The 14 mile round trip hike to get there makes the destination that much more enjoyable. But, you have to get past the thousands of gators, bobcats, panthers, snakes, and baby kittens! Ahhh! That's right. We ran into baby kittens in the middle of the swamp. At least we think.. Maybe they were baby bobcats? Anyways, I don't normally like to give away spots, but I challenge you to go out there. If you dare!! DO NOT FEED THE GATORS! With my two favorite humans on this earth!!!! @hoovisyo and @tidetothesea 🙏🌌🔥 . . .
