I don't like snakes or gators! (Okefenokee Preserve)

It was a beautiful day today and we hadn't been hiking in awhile. The Okefenokee NWR was only half an hour away so we decided to cruise on up to GA.

According to their literature, "nearly 400,000 people visit the refuge each year, making it the 16th most visited refuge in the National Wildlife Refuge System. It is the largest in acreage of any that is not located in a western state." (after doing a little research, I found that the number 1 visited park within the WRS is: Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge, Oregon).

Not only did we see beautiful scenery as we walked the boardwalk through the swamp, but saw one Timber Rattlesnake (venomous) and three gators.

Below are some other pictures I took today:
