So I know some of the members are in Georgia or near there. Just curious if any of you have been to this park? I visited 42 years ago while stationed in Hinesville, GA. Young and dumb then and had no idea about carnivorous plants or the fact that there are a few species in the park. I watched a video recently but can not locate it of a few people touring and looking for Sarrs and aquatics which they found. Very interesting to view. We floated down in inner tubes and was a definitely a time to remember. I would love to go again but I swore I would never visit GA again. Running in red sand was never fun.

But that red “sand” is the best thing there is for getting the cheese from out between your toes!!!

The Okefenokee is prime gator habitat, and you went tubing there? :shock:
