Hiking the Alafia River Took the kids for a morning hike and documented the trip.
Yesterday, after my child had a 20 minute screaming meltdown (He is almost 6, when does that stop?) I thought some fresh air would do the whole family good. So we set off for a hike in the woods. I would like to say that normally hiking in December in Florida is pretty awesome, but I sweated way too much yesterday. I really want winter to be here!
We set off from Alderman's Preserve in Lithia. I longed for the cool shade of the river so we set off heading due south. We were quickly rewarded with some shade and a gorgeous view.
This can be a short or long hike depending on your skill level and you are bound to see lots of turtles and maybe even a alligator or two. I do suggest bringing bug spray no matter what time of year it is!
