Hiking trail for alligators

This had the look of a well-kept hiking trail.

Only it was made by a gator instead!

It was safe because I had a clear view. And it beat walking through the thick sawgrass, which can be exhausting over any great distance, even when its dry.

Not to mention you can't see where you're walking ...


That tends to makes me a little uncomfortable.

BTW: This is the same dome featured with photographs two days back.

The area is beautiful, but I would be worried about snakes as well as gators!

Good point. Water moccasins are considered belligerent, not because they attack, but they won't back off if you approach and will defend their turf. They are mostly in the wetter and deeper areas.
