Outdoors enthusiasts don protective shoes and clutch walking sticks for a trek through the Everglades during mating season, the most active time of year for forest-dwelling species. The woods echo with the splashing of water-dancing alligators, and sunlight trickles through cypress domes, whose branches support bard oils, snowy egrets, and marooned hot air balloon captains. Water vessels grant access to sights such as Noble Hammock, a secluded former bootlegging route that winds through mangroves and marl prairies.
