No kidding. If there's one thing I've never been able to comprehend how people can do it, it's walking through ponds/marshland with barefeet. I mean, I can't even understand how people do it up here in Canada where the worst you have is icky, unknown water floor with various bugs and maybe leeches.

But in the American south with so many poisonous/venoumous animals hanging out? I literally wouldn't be able to walk through like that guy if someone was going to hand me $1000 at the other end, let alone for fun on a nature hike.

I always wear my sneakers or hikers when I wade.

Lat year we were in over a foot of water -sometimes more- for miles on this trail.

It's odd how we only saw 2 venomous snakes and 2 gators on the whole 72 miles.

Yes of course there were all those we didn't see. At least cotton mouths usually stay on top of the water.

This particular canal has a bottom consisting of a grid with sand over it in the trail crossing
area.

For the other watery parts, there's no way we would go barefoot. Cypress knees, tree roots, fallen logs, "gator backs" (horizontal palmetto roots and branches)- your feet would be lacerated.

When I'm by myself I wear snake boots; sometimes full length snake chaps if I'm wading.

That helicopter and antivenin trip is damned expensive!

We started here at Hobe Sound beach



We walked through the tiny downtown to miles of dunes at Jonathan Dickinson State Park.

Two shots of me on the Riverbend Park trail, thanks to Sean. The river is the Loxahatchee.
It's obviously not in the photo.

Habitats change quickly on the trail .

I don't change much at all lol.

I actually have been listening to the Audible version of that book.

So squeal like a pig, boy!

All that aside it is a really good book.

Speaking of pigs , I did see a large boar.

He took off quickly.

I found this bad boy out by Longview a couple weeks ago. First time I've seen a white buffalo.



A white calf as well.
