Trail Lakes CG to West Miami

Trail Lakes is a very pretty campground. The people are really nice here too. We had a great night and morning.

Bill ShaneyfeltThat looks like a Burmese python. In Florida, an invasive species.

The more you look, the more gators you see when you are standing there watching the water!

We stopped at MIdway CG where we were going to camp and it is a very nice campground but there is no electricity, no showers and there are alligators in the lake so no swimming. We got there before noon and it was a beautiful day so we decided to go for it and ride to West Miami!
