Going Home, Day 3 -- March 4, 2012

Day 3. March 04. Inverness, FL, to Wakulla Springs, FL.

We drove north and west making a few little stops to St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. We had hoped to see Red-cockaded Woodpeckers, but only saw a few birds and a nice lighthouse. We then drove to Wakulla Springs and spent the night at the historic lodge. The lodge would not honor their advertised special, so we got even by eating Subway sandwiches for dinner on a park bench rather than in the expensive restaurant. In the late evening and early darkness, I hiked about 1.5 miles on a trail in the swamp were the first-of-the-season Spring Peepers (little frogs) sang in the darkness and Barred Owls called occasionally.
