Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park
I arrived at around 4:20 in the afternoon, the park entrance was unattended and you just had to leave your payment in the drop box there. I grabbed a map of the park and I was all set. The main road that you see took you into the heart of the preserve; vast open spaces surrounded you in all directions. I parked the car and unloaded my bike and my gear; I was then on my way after choosing a random trail. The first thing that greeted me was a deer which I spotted right on the side of the road; I was able to snap a few quick pictures before it skipped away! I biked and took pictures for around four hours total and I did not encounter a single person aside from the park ranger on my way out. All that time and I covered but a tiny fraction of the place. The storm clouds above scattered rain showers from time to time and I preferred it that way as it gives the photos a certain mood as well. It was a perfect day. Next plan is to go back on a clear cloudless day and shoot the stars and hopefully the milky way at night! I can’t wait for where the next adventure will take me.
