Starting the year off right with a New Year’s paddle with friends – old and new. We got there as the state park opened and on a cold winter’s day we pretty much had the park and river to ourselves.
We paddled from the Silver Springs State Park launch to Ray Wayside Park. We saw a little bit of everything that the Silver has to offer. And that little bit is pretty much a slice of everything that north Florida has to offer in the way of wildlife. These pictures so why the Silver River is my go-to place for wildlife photography and the perfect place for me to introduce out-of-state friends to natural north Florida.
