Spanish Moss hangs from the trees

Turkey Vultures stretching their wings

Hillsborough River

Fog rose from the river in the early morning

There are some big cypress trees along the river

A hawk waits in a tree for his next meal

We spent almost two weeks at Hillsborough River State Park located east of Tampa about 15 minutes from I-75. It is very popular and fills up on the weekends. When we weren't visiting with our daughter's family we were enjoying the wildlife and walking along the river where we saw some huge cypress trees. It was usually foggy when Blondie and I went for our morning walks.

Hillsborough River is just far enough off the Interstate to be very quiet and remote, yet close enough to Tampa that it is not a bad drive.
