Exploring The Everglades National Park With Family – A Photo Essay

It is definitely a must-see when in Florida. Bring comfortable shoes and cameras or binoculars. It was a spectacular place to be. Silent and beautiful with a splendor that defied description both because of the uniqueness of the scenery and the distinctiveness of the flora and fauna that make this park their home.
