I went hiking on the Florida Trail last week near the Oasis Visitor Center. I was amazed at the absolute lack of water (we didn’t see any), the closest we got was a bit of spongy ground near where any cypress grew. We were there last year (almost exactly) and had to walk through ankle-deep water in some spots, and got to search for tadpoles and frogs with the kids – none to be seen this year.
Thanks for the blog, I’m learning a lot from your posts.
