In multiple articles I have described the dike trails and canals in the marshes as an ‘Alligator Highway’.
I think these photographs can give you a good idea of what I mean.
The shot above was taken from the edge of a marsh canal, across the other side had a local sunning himself.
Passing by were two other gators slowly heading to a larger pond.
This particular marsh is about 18,000 + acres. I can’t image how many Alligators actually live there.
