Torreya Twilight

The only place in Florida I've seen more mosquitoes is at Lower Suwannee River Wildlife Refuge.

Transcription Triumph

I finally finished transcribing an interview with an important former staffer that ran 2.5 hours. Transcription took a week and a half. This particular fellow rarely speaks in complete sentences, and some of his partial-sentences were too inscrutable to record.

I'm excited to move on.

Torreya Traversed

More of this series...including pictures of the Apalachicola River flowing North to Georgia and South to the Gulf of Mexico.

Torreya State Park

The first quarter of this series of pics is well-lit by the 4:30PM sun. The rest get darker and darker as cloud cover dominated the landscape. To be candid, I couldn't tell you for sure which of these is a torreya tree, but I'm sure I caught one in these slides. I've been looking at images of the tree on a Google Image Search and it doesn't quite mirror the trees I saw.

In any case, the bluff's vista is the highlight.

The Miccosukee Trail in April

April showers have begun...

And those same yellow-and-red veins of flowers I found in Gadsden County are in bloom on the Miccosukee Greenway trail outside Tallahassee. I saw another flower variety on an overpass near Interstate-10, on the trail. The soil is damp, the leaves are lush, and raindrops are still on some of the flowers. And bumble bees and bugs.
