Apr 20, 2012 - Finally!

Yes, finally we are on the road again. We are so happy! This will be short as we have no cell or wifi. We are parked in the middle of Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. It's peaceful and quite. Very dry here but it's suppose to rain this weekend. Yesterday we rode out and saw gators, white tail deer, wild turkey and a bunny. The weather is nice for now. We are in town to get some water and milk...the nearest grocery store is 68 miles....one way! I promise as soon as we get wifi I will post more.

SILVER TRAILS

Feb 6, 2012 - Stephen C Foster State Park Fargo, GA

Otters Most of you know that otters eat fish, crayfish, and other small invertebrates. Did you know that they would also eat small alligators too? There were four small alligators about 2 ½ to 3 feet long in the boat basin. We know that the otters ate three of four small alligators. We’re not sure if the otters also ate the fourth alligator but it did disappear. Cleopatra Moth I saw this moth on the side of the campground Trading Post and was struck by the colors and the beauty of it. The Okefenokee Sill The sill is a dam that was erected...

We took a day trip to the west entrance of the Okefenokee where Stephen C Foster State Park is located. We will be working as campground hosts at the state park from January 1 to February 28, 2012. While we were there we took a boat tour. The west side of the Okefenokee is a lot different than the east side. The headwaters of the Suwannee and St. Mary’s rivers begin in the Okefenokee Swamp.

Apr 19, 2009 - Okefenokee

Mother to the beautiful Suwannee River - Sunday, April 19 Our first visit to the Florida Everglades years ago was a revelation. We had expected it to be a dark and dreary swamp, filled with cypress trees draped in Spanish moss, home to alligators and snakes and all variety of other scary creatures. Instead we found the ‘River of Grass’ to be a wide open plain, a shallow wetland filled with sunlight. Home to it’s share of alligators and snakes to be sure, but home also to birds and countless other life forms of exquisite beauty. The dark and...

Mar 14, 2008 - Fargo,Georgia (Okefenokee Swamp)

Okefenokee Swamp Larry titles this Fargo, Georgia (yes, we finally got out of Florida, but who could tell) but we are really right smack dab in the center of the Okefenokee Swamp, staying at Stephen Foster State Park. Yes, another "Bonnie park" complete with trees, mud and bugs! Also very pretty. We walked a boardwalk through the swamp. It was eerie - the water was high and mirror still, reflecting the trees and bushes. There were no birds and we did not see any fish. The water was pretty muddy, so they may have been there, but they...
