Canoeing with Marge en la Manigua

Back seat driver (actually she steers.)

Marge and I went canoeing the other day in Everglades National Park. If you click on the link you can see more pics of gators and herons and shit.

Traveling through this freaking thick ass manigua and bumping into snakes, crocodiles, and gators at every turn... I kept wondering how the Native Americans that lived here (the Tequesta, Calusa, then the Seminoles) managed to actually live here! Still, it was very cool and very beautiful.

Hey - which trail did you take?

I've been wanting to drag my stepson into the swamp, but not sure exactly where.

Might haul a tent and that....

We rented the canoes at the Flamingo Visitors Center:
