Who says swamps aren't beautiful?! a critter filled hike (lizards, dragonflies, some sort of mammal that might have been a muskrat or an otter, giant grasshoppers, spiders.) We did not see a gator in the marsh overlook, but we sure as heck saw one chilling in the middle of the trail on our way back, about 20 feet ahead of us. when it heard us coming it slowly stood up and sauntered into the woods. Wear bugspray and be loud if you see a gator in the trail.
