Trail to Boonie Falls
|A Nice Little Pond You Can Almost See|
The walk out there was prettier than I anticipated. I arrived at 5:30pm, so the sun was still a little to high for photographing trees, but I took a few shots with my point and shoot anyway, just for fun. These photos will at least give you a sense of how pretty the trail is. Much of the trail is actually a very rudimentary boardwalk, and part of it looks brand new.
After crossing a small bridge over Lockwood Creek, the trail takes a sharp turn to the left, and you can hear the falls. I chuckled almost as soon as I found it. There's a sign explaining that this is the southernmost falls along the Florida Trail and a bench that, should you sit on it, would almost give you a nice view of the falls except for the small tree that partially obstructs your view.
So I visited the southernmost waterfall on the Florida Trail. It's nothing to write home about, but I guess it is something to blog about. Perhaps I'll visit it again in the hopes of some better photos, but more likely, if I go there again, it will be to find wildlife and scenery. But I'm glad I went and saw it. It was a fun experience.
