It has been my December tradition to spend some portion of the holidays camping. Everglades N.P. has been my go to place for the photography, incredible park atmosphere and quality of people.
This Dec., 2014 was no different, however I started off late in the day and decided to stop at Burns Lake Campground in Big Cypress National Preserve on the way down to Everglades NP. Here are a couple pics of the campsite at sunset, various maps, lake shots and sunrise shots.
After a night of camping I drove across old US 41 to Homestead and down to Everglades National Park.
I only took a couple pics of my campsite as the trip was one of relaxation vs work. Also included are images of the Flamingo Campground. I stay at Long Pine Key, $16/night with up to 8 people and two tents, bathrooms, drinkable water but no showers. I appreciate the natural feel of Long Pine Key with all trees, lake and secluded feel vs the openess at Flamingo (35 miles away), but there is no comparing to the mesmerizing ocean view.
