Lake Okeechobee

The marshy edges of Lake Okeechobee in South Florida are pictured above. We saw a gator and some beautiful birds in the marsh grasses. We were looking southward from the town of Okeechobee; the lake has a 30 foot levee surrounding it. The lake is the headwater of the Everglades, which is technically a river, as opposed to a swamp. It was a hike from Jupiter, but worth it for the sunset views.
Your Imaginary Friend,
