Began the day at the Juniper Wayside.
Not sure if the cardinal is from St. Louis
I was waiting for Silver Glen Springs to open so I could get this.
Into the tilapia
Two cars at Silver Glen. Both with Protect Florida Springs license plates. Both Annual Pass holders. A nice local lady.
Dirt road into the Salt Spring Run Marina. My new pass does not include this facility. Had to shell out the usual 5 bucks.
Red shouldered hawk
Wild, or controlled?
Camera over the side
Leaving the Marina
Salt Springs Recreation Area
Salt Springs has several narrow vents
Need to get my money's worth on the Spring Hopper pass. Unlike my State Parks pass, where $60.00 gets you in for a year from the month purchased, the Springs pass runs from January 1 to December 31.
Can't beat the views along the trail from Juniper Spring to Fern Hammock Spring
Boil in Fern Hammock
When I first began visiting Juniper Springs, 11 years ago, all they rented were traditional aluminum canoes.
Now, they have plastic ones
Sunset stop at Beakman Lake
