The Ancient Forest In Florida That’s Right Out Of A Storybook

Despite Florida being known for its beaches and endlessly rewarding sunsets, there is so much to see if you just go a little bit inland to where more of the nature action is. Florida is riddled with what are known as “old-growth forests” which are forests that have trees which have reached significant age with little to no disturbances. This particular ancient forest in Florida is as beautiful as they come, with plush vegetation, tons of wildlife not to mention the earth’s largest ancient virgin bald cypress forest. Sounds like something right out of a storybook…
