We had a great day at the Highland Hammock State Park recently. We enjoyed walking the many short trails that showcase Florida at its oldest, wildest state. The canopy of tall trees, hearing the wind blow through them as they sway, provides nice shade. There were lots of colorful fall leaves when we were there in early November. A couple of the trails feature a narrow boardwalk that carries you over wetlands. It is exciting to walk it and the landscape is beautiful. The highlight of the park is the State of Florida Museum for the Civil Conservation Corps, a work program begun in the early 1930s by President FDR. The website for the CCC gives details of structures and roads built by the CCC that are still in evidence at state parks around the state and country.
