Hammock State Park is located about an hour east of the gulf cost.  Its seclusion makes it a great place to see a habitat that is a true reflection of what Florida was like before the 1600’s.  The live Oak with Spanish moss is a contrast as I sketched it in the middle of the cattle and orange fields that dominate much of the interior of the state.  The park has nice hiking trails and a board walk to experience the Cypress in the swamps.  The roads have a dedicated bike and walking paths and there is a museum dedicated to the Civilian Corps that created all these great parks across the US.
