Roger was asked to share his expertise with the staff at Big Cypress National Preserve, so we all went along. We took the Florida Trail south from the Oasis Visitor Center and stopped at a gator hole. A gator hole is an area where the cypress grow larger due to deeper water, usually dug by a gator at some point. The cypress were covered in Tillandsia and several orchid species.

The water was a bit chilly but we had a great time out in the field.
