Gone to See Florida 2013 Road Trip. Day 5: St. Petersburg and Merritt Island.
I started the day at Fort De Soto park for sunrise. There is a small beach at the end of the road where you can watch the sun rise under the Sunshine Skyway bridge. I then drove across the state to Merritt Island to spend a couple of days at the National Wildlife Refuge.
Gone to See America 2008: Wintertime in Rocky Mountain National Park.
One of the benefits when I was working part-time (two weeks a month) in Boulder, Colorado was that Rocky Mountain National Park was only an hour drive. I got to see and take pictures in the park during all four seasons. A winter storm was approaching, so I only spent a few hours in the park.
