Lovely pictures

Had an awsome time this summer. It's astonishing how this little beach changes from a season to another.

Of course, "lots of wildlife" includes not so welcome wildlife on the insect side. Apart from that, it's a very beautiful place to have short walks and of course to see alligators roaming free. We actually saw one in mid-July, kept our distance and got some great pictures. :)

I used to go out here all the time as a child. It was great to see that not much has changed! The alligators are still watching you from the observation deck, the red tipped black birds still caw at you, the air is still suffocatingly hot even in the shade, and locals are still out fishing. My mom says... More

You can visit nature relatively unaffected by man by car, by foot or by boat in this large expanse of preserved marsh lands. There are several walking trails that take you out into the marsh to observation decks. You can see and photograph a variety of birds and animals including alligators.

This park is awesome and very quiet. We took some cool pictures. If you live in the area, I highly recommend that you go and your family spend an afternoon out there, don't forget to take some food and drinks for the kids because you won't find any café or restaurants in the area.

Very representative of a south Louisiana tidal marsh. Lots of wildlife and scenic areas. Bring binoculars and bug spray. Not much for car drives, but a few walking areas, along with fishing and crabbing opportunities. There are airboat tours out of Hackberry, and nice beach area in Holly Beach.

Sunday, 15JUL2012, and I was approaching the end of daylight on the first day of my finally completing my Trans-Texas Bicycle Odyssey,11JUN2011-08JUL2011, terminated due to heat stroke symptoms. This remote area can only be accessed by road (Louisiana state highway 27) or possibly by boat (Intra-Coastal waterway).
