The River Trail at Silver River State Park


The River Trail winds about 1/2 mile through woods and swamps from the parking lot to the Silver River.

If you look closely, you can see Lois Anne and Haley in the distance.

Very tranquil looking and so peaceful...I'd just have to forget about the gators on the river.

Would this be the Silver Trail? How did it get its name, er, I withdraw the question!!

I am sure that the person and dog in your photo are finding this a delightful place to share a walk, but I hope that the dog does not pick up any ticks in the woods.

So much reminds me of my last trip to Matheran. We'd done lot of trekking through the hilly jungle... :-)

This looks very much like one of our local nature trails here. What a relaxing place to walk.

I agree with «Louis», an excellent picture with a great light. Lois Anne and Haley aren't so difficult to spot, the complete well the image.

Very calm and peaceful, I hear the birds and fresh air.

Andreea said...

Looks like a very nice place for a short walk.

Allison said...

Looks a lot like July in Minnesoooota! Do you miss the change of seasons at all, J?
BTW, it's going to get to 10 above today! Woo hoo!

Jacob said...

@ Allison - Ocala is 300 miles north of Miami/Ft. Lauderdale. There is no real change of season in Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, even though we would get some cool weather sometimes (in the 40s at night)...

In Ocala, we do get a taste of a change of seasons...all of them...the best are fall and spring where the temps are quite mild. And some winters are very nice. This one has been way too cold.

In fact, it's only getting up to 72 today!

Looks similar to my walking trail. Pretty almost any time of year, except when it's rained. Squish.

Wonderful trail in the woods. A perfect place to run and feel so good being outside. MB

Very pretty setting. I saw Lois before I read the post :-)

Looks like a delightful place to take a walk, Jacob. Too bad there's no snow though. ;-)

Lois said...

What a lovely place for a walk! I like the way the sunlight is filtering through those trees.

Chuck Pefley said...

Nice dappled light. Yes, I can see your guides leading the way -:)

Ummmm... gators wade out, don't they? ;-)

Lee Spangler said...

looks okay to me. I love the green, moist place filled with lotsa little and a few big living things. nice pix to appreciate.

Ilse said...

OH! Wish I were there.

Jacob said...

@ Ciel - You're so silly. Gators "wade out" only when they're hungry...not to worry - they get hungry only once a month.

merrytait said...

Now that looks like a place I'd like to go--very nice! And those gators? Hmm, maybe a gator wrestler can accompany me.
