Millions of Acres of Sawgrass

The one wild thing of which there is probably the most in Florida is sawgrass -- millions of acres of if.


This is a view of the Everglades looking northeast from the Pahayokee Overlook, which about half way between Homestead and Seminole. Ordinarily this sawgrass would be standing in water.

There was a drought when we were there and the ground was baked dry and cracked.
