Walk from Otter to Alligator

These images are from a walk on Monday with David Moynahan in the St. Marks Refuge, from north of Otter Lake toward Alligator Lake. Gates in the Panacea unit of the Refuge are unlocked at this time to provide vehicle access for freshwater fishing. The walk was along a ditch dug years ago by slaves of a private land owner to drain Alligator Lake in an attempt to grow crops. The understory vegetation is open under ancient live oaks, with periodic sinks/ponds along the ditch. We encountered two snakes, a rattlesnake and an oak snake. What I fine morning!
