We now have moved to Miami, the southern end of the city. Amazingly we found a campground which is in a large county park and quite isolated from the city. The traffic jams we encountered yesterday driving through the city were quite awful so we were very relieved to find this campground and get out of the traffic. The Everglades we toured today is the area within the Everglades National Park. Just before entering the park we drove past many agricultural fields which were being irrigated. The first informational sign we saw within the park said something to the effect that the Everglades were on "life support". In other words, the surrounding areas have been so developed that the Everglades are drying up, and to keep them alive pumping stations have been set up for their life support. It is hard to imagine that our grandchildren may not be able to see what we saw today, we so enjoyed our time within the park. At our first stop I noticed a bush with a zebra longspan butterfly on it, he sat long enough for me to get this picture.
