Heading Out To Sea - Blue Cypress Yellow Light - Whitetop Pitcherplant on Green

The Florida National Scenic Trail - usually just called The Florida Trail - is a 1300 mile footpath from the Gulf Islands National Seashore in the panhandle to the Big Cypress National Preserve in south Florida. I have backpacked on a number of sections of The Florida Trail, mostly in the Ocala National Forest. I have not done any of the western connector but in three previous hikes had backpacked most of the eastern connector and the combined trail where it runs through the Ocala National Forest. This March I completed my missing portion of the Ocala eastern connector from Salt Springs Highway to Juniper Springs in a three day solo hike.

 Hopkins Prairie and Clouds

Most of one day of this hike was spent where the trail follows the serpentine edge of Hopkins Prairie. Along this section I found multiple subjects and scenes to photograph, including this pretty little wildflower called a rock-rose and also known as pinebarren frostweed.


Read more about the Hopkins Prairie portion of the hike and see more photos in the Paul Rebmann Nature Photography blog post Backpacking Hopkins Prairie.
