Everglades

The Everglades in Southern Florida is a shallow slow moving river. In the wet season when Lake Okeechobee overflows, the river stretches to 60 miles wide and runs for over a 100 miles. In the dry season much of the river dries up and the water life such as alligators and turtles tend to live around ever diminishing pools or the man-made canals. The glades are a vast biodiverse region, thriving with bird and wildlife.

Cycling along the track one can often see much of the natural wildlife. Though the alligators are frequently seen in the dry season as later as the river of grass grows the alligators roam a much broader area. Guide tours also take visitors along the track.
