Hi, we're Sandra and John. We're Florida authors who enjoy the outdoors as a couple. Looking for places to hike, bike, camp, and paddle? Dig in! We share our adventures and the destinations we find to inspire, inform, and engage you with the outdoors.
Florida is different. Stretching 1,400 miles from the edge of the Everglades to Pensacola Beach, the Florida Trail is one of only 11 National Scenic Trails across America. It starts in a swamp, and ends on a beach. What you’ll see in between will give you a new appreciation for natural Florida.
