Evan, Jacob, Risa, Dick and Lynn set out on a 'Day Paddle' with Backcountry Cowboy Outfitters @ Nine Mile Pond in Everglades National Park. A bit of initial apprehension was gradually overcome by the natural beauty of the fresh water slough. Numerous birds like, Osprey, Great Blue Heron, Great White Heron, Green Heron, Great White Egret, Snowy Egret, Wood Stork, Kingfisher, Vultures, Roseate Spoonbill, Cormorants and Anhingas all were seen on the 3 1/2 hour paddle.
We didn't have to go far to find the resident Alligators, despite the constant 'eyeballs' that were never far away, a great time was had by all.
