Last October we made our first trip down to south Florida since 2004. During our past trips we spent most of our time on the Gulf Coast side of the state except for trips to the Everglades, the Keys, and Merrit Island NWR. On this trip I wanted to hit all of our favorite places and explore some new locations. So we ended up staying a couple of night on the east coast near Boca Raton. This was near Loxahatchee NWR which was one of the new locations that I wanted to try out.
