Hiking in the Extraordinary Bird Rookery Swamp, Naples, Florida - Part One

These are photos from the extraordinary Bird Rookery Swamp in Naples, Florida. The nature and wildlife is everywhere. The trail is 12 miles long but you can do just segments of it. Near the start of the trail is Nellie, the12 foot alligator who likes to sleep on the trail. Who is going to stop her, right? It's a little nerve-racking to get by her but she just snoozes away, occasionally opening her eyes to make sure the hikers are behaving themselves. Enjoy!
