Everglades National Park is 1.5 million acres in size and includes 20 percent of the original Florida everglades. It provides habitat and protection for several endangered species like the American crocodile, the Florida manatee, and the Florida panther (very rare). One species I could have done without was the mosquito. A great way to see some of the park is to take a boat tour, which I did on a boat called the "Pelican" during my visit in 1999.
Of course we need a few more alligator photos.
And a few other photos
If you have limited time to spend in Everglades NP then Royal Palm is the place to go. The Royal Palm Information Station (aka Royal Palm Visitor Center) is located about a mile from the Homestead park entrance on FL State Road 9336. Once you get there walk along the Anhinga Trail, a short (8/10 mile), round trip hike through a sawgrass marsh. You will see alligators, birds, and weird plants and insects.
And so we bid adieu to the Everglades. Background content obtained from Wikipedia.
