Monday Geology Picture: An Airboat in the Everglades

An airboat giving a tourist tour in the everglades.

For this week’s geology picture, I thought I’d share a picture that I recently took in the Florida everglades. My husband and I were recently down in Florida for five days, and one day we visited the Bille Swamp Safari. I highly recommend visiting the safari park, which is located on a Seminole Native American reservation about an hour’s drive from Fort Lauderdale. We spend the whole day at the safari park. We went on an airboat ride and a buggy ride, went to a venomous snake show and a critter (creepy-crawly things) show, we visited various zoo animals (my favorite were the Florida panthers, and we went on a nature walk on a raised walkway through the swamp. If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend the safari park.
