Landscapes at Sleeping Turtles Preserve

Hot, hazy afternoon here on the Gulf Coast of Florida.  Took a walk along the Myakka River in Sleeping Turtles Preserve. 

The trails are flat, easy and very well marked.  There is a nice picnic site and a canoe/kayak launch.

Rainy season hasn't arrived yet, but lots of bromeliads blooming.

A great book about riverscapes,

Cabbage Palm Fern (Phlebodium aureum)

Come see the Myakka River when you get a chance.  You will love it too.
