New Images from Myakka

Myakka River State Park is a very wild place. You can see the real Florida the way it was 1,000 years ago before Europeans came to the area. Wildlife is in abundance and visitors are guaranteed to see alligators sunning on the banks of the Myakks River. Deer and wild turkey will walk right by you and pay no attention. That is one of the reasons this area is a popular destination point.

There are 38 miles of trails that leed through the park, covering a varity of terrain. You will go into flood pine forest, then emerge into a vast Savannah of grass that stretches to the horizon. Then, find yourself in a cypress swamp dome. There is nothing boring about the hiking trails in this area.

Once in camp, you can settle back to relax and enjoy the night around the campfire stargazing. You can, like we did, go out looking for cryptids with your cameras and see if you can get an image. With two recent video sightings, and one confirmed class sighting on the BFRO data banks, this area is prime. The video below is Kevin and I after several hours of night exploration around the Mossy Hammock primitive camp area.
