Favorite photography destinations: Shark Valley Trail, Everglades NP

February 10, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

One of the best opportunities to observe wildlife close-up is the Shark Valley Trail in Everglades National Park.  The trail starts as part of the Tram Road and is a 15-mile round trip limited to bicycles, foot traffic and the park's trams.  The first mile or so is extremely productive as it parallels a drainage canal.  All sorts of bird life can be observed and photographed and they seem to be fairly accustomed to human presence.  In addition to birds, alligators are frequently found right on the trail, particularly early in the mornings as they sun themselves on the blacktop.


Here are a few of my memorable photos from along the trail:
