Wakodahatchee Wetlands, Palm Beach County, Florida

I visited south Florida for Thanksgiving. I was traveling very light, and therefore brought my Lumix DMC-FX35 camera, instead of my newer GF1. While there, I paid a visit, as is customary for me, to Wakodahatchee Wetlands (also see Wikipedia’s entry). “Wakodahatchee” means “created waters” in the Seminole language. It is an artificial wetlands created by the Water Utilities Department of Palm Beach County, Florida.

Schunemunk Mountain State Park, Orange County, New York

YBS, Bombastic, Xi and I left Queens around 9:15 a.m., arriving at Schunemunk Mountain State Park about 1-1/2 hours later. This is one of many New York state parks that is not even listed on the state’s website. I still haven’t figured out why the state is so incompetent as to omit a large percentage of their parks from their own website.
