I started the trail at the entrance of the park. The first few miles take you through rolling sand dunes. It was 8:45am by the time I left my car but the breeze was gently blowing off the ocean. This would be a beautiful August day.
These tracks reminded me that I wasn't too far from civilization.
Four hours later I emerged from the trail and headed back home. It was probably one of the best days I have experienced here in South Florida.
Here's a list of animal sightings: armadillo, dead rabbit, bobcat scat, downy woodpecker, blue jay, northern cardinal, eastern towhee singing, turkey vulture.
