We took a hike…the shortest hike of the year!
(and no, I won’t count it!)
It was short drive down a dirt road and a short hike to the end of a boardwalk.
And the bugs were biting! We hiked in ‘double time’, took a few photos and raced back to the car.
We had a natural repellant on but these were ‘swamp insects’ and they were out for blood!
So what did we see?
The Goethe Giant!
Florida’s seventh largest Cypress tree, an estimated 907 years old, measuring 28.5 feet in circumference and 87.5 feet tall.
And well worth the quick hike!
