Brush Palms at Wekiwa Springs State Park

October 12, 2007 - 12:49am -- Shawn

I visited a couple state parks during my last trip to Orlando, Florida. At Wekiwa Springs State Park, I took a walk on a great nature trail that went through some of Florida's "wilderness". It was as wild as I was going to tolerate anyway. I was struck by this scene. I'm used to seeing tall palm trees in tropical locations. Here, though, I found these palms that were very short and much of the brush we came across was thick with it. The scraggly trees were a nice contrast to the short palms.
