I am so happy we stopped here even though it was raining! The water lilies were gorgeous, the ibis was a big surprise, and I only wish we could have stayed a little bit longer.

Beautiful walk through the swamp, spotted a baby alligator. Signs provide interesting facts about the trees and wildlife. We were pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed our visit including climbing to the top of the tower for a great view.
