At the beginning of October I took a little camping trip. I reserved a campsite at one of Florida’s many beautiful state parks: Lake Kissimmee State Park. If you are a nature lover and want to get away from the lights and sounds of the city then this is the place for you. Located about 15 miles away from the main city area of Lake Wales is a park that is hidden from urban development. Once you arrive at the entrance the campground is still 3 miles back in the park. With extremely dark skies the park is a wonderful place for stargazing.

Upon my arrival I checked in at the ranger station and drove back to the campground to get my site all setup.
When I checked in on Friday evening the ranger informed me that their cow camp had just opened for visitors. I was intrigued at the photo opportunities so I perused the brochure to find out more information.
Here is a close-up of the metal emblem on the horse bridle hanging on the end of the wooden post.
And this old wooden canteen for carrying drinking water was another great find.
But to really finish off the night nothing can beat a sky full of stars!
I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Please consider leaving a comment as I always enjoy hearing from my visitors! :D
