I took a few days from work to get away for a quick hike and hang. The Florida National Scenic Trail transits the Green Swamp rambling through pine flatwoods, ancient sand dunes, and oak hammocks. All told, there are more than 80,000 acres in the Green Swamp. Perfect for wandering without being lost. The Green Swamp basin is also the headwaters for some of central Florida's most popular rivers including the Hillsborough, Withlachoochee, Ocklawaha, and Peace Rivers.
My get away also marked my video directorial debut with a new Canon G12. I have no idea what I am doing, but I'm having a great time. Try not to laugh too much at the video, but hopefully it will give you an idea of some of the great natural areas we have in central Florida.
