Today we toured our 51st National Park, Everglades National Park. The park is the largest tropical wilderness in the United States. Everglades is the third-largest national park in the contiguous United States after Death Valley and Yellowstone. In 1976 UNESCO declared the Everglades as a World Heritage Site. The Everglades are a network of wetlands and forests fed by a river flowing 0.25 miles per day out of Lake Okeechobee.
We started the day with an airboat tour with Safari Everglades Adventure.
