Remember to pick up your lifetime passes to the Nations Parks & Forests! They are due to increase from $10 to $80!!! It is such a great deal, for those over 62…

We were able to go back to the forest today. It is so big and beautiful. Easy to walk, as the paths are well cleared and the ground is compacted sand. Grandma has been coming on our walks too! She enjoys being with us.

Sand Pines -Ocala has largest concentration of Sand Pines in the world. But they only live 30-40 years. Ocala National Forest has the largest concentration of bear population in Florida. Yikes! We even saw bear poop…as you can see from Mom’s photos.

Dad saw turkeys but Mom was too slow and I was with her, so I missed them. I sure could smell their tracks though!
