Loop Road in the Big Cypress part of the Florida Everglades is one of those drives you need to take. But if this photo hurts your eyes or scrambles your brain, you will be better off staying on the main road as it looks like this in all directions not very far into the swamp and you will be lucky to get out alive.

Living along Aquia Creek in northern Virginia was quite an experience. We lived in an RV at a small park at the end of a dirt road that runs along the waterfront. The people there were amazing, and we still keep in touch with many of them. I passed this seldom used dock daily and thought about how nice it would be to have a boat tied up there where I could head out fishing at moment’s notice or cruise to the Potomac a few miles downstream and head either up or downstream to visit restaurants and bars just a few miles in either direction or head up to the DC area sightseeing.

Deep in the Florida swamps you can find places that, with a permit, you can travel off the tourist roads into the wilder parts of the swamp. This particular place, called Pace’s Dike, is on Loop Road in the Big Cypress Preserve near the southernmost point of the Florida Trail.

Some people really enjoy winter, I am not one of those people. However, I do enjoy occasionally visiting winter for short periods of time. I admit it’s a magical scene when the trees are covered in snow, and everything’s hushed as the blanket of snow temporarily dampens the noise of modern life.
