Florida Day Nine: An Accidental Morning Hike In Key Largo.
It was Thursday morning on my recent visit to South Florida, I was again off for my morning hike in Key Largo. I once again took the 1o miles and approximately 15 minute drive to the Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park. I enjoy hiking here and hoped to see some more song birds and other critters on my walk. However, when I arrived I realized I had forgot to install the battery in my camera. Of course I wanted to share my hiking experience so I drove back to my lodging at the Bar Harbor Resort for a battery. Upon arriving, I didn’t feel like driving back to the park, so I decided to take in the neighborhood near my resort.
It was a sunny ,warm and humid morning with temperatures in the mid 70’s, My kind of weather. I love the heat and humidity. Song birds sang as I left the beautiful gardens of the Bar Harbor Resort. I think they were palm or prairie warblers but I wasn’t able to get a good view of them high in the palm fronds.
Traffic wasn’t too bad heading south on this early morning. I walked along the highway and on the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail.
It was about a 2 1/2 mile hike to the Bar Harbor Resort. I grabbed a cup of coffee and a homemade scone before returning to my room, looking forward to exploring some more of the Keys in the afternoon. Here is a link to a gallery on my blog website with more photos from my morning hike in Key Largo. Florida Day Nine. Morning hike. February 25 2021.
