Welcome back ladies & gentleman! It has been awhile. With my work schedule and other side activities, it's sometimes hard for me to get on here. Well, I'm back.
So with my love of photography and my new love of exercising, I thought why not put the two together. About a month ago I went to Washington Oaks Gardens State Park in Palm Coast, and I had a blast. To me, photography and hiking go hand and hand. So I thought heck, why not make it a habit. This time I thought I would tackle Bulow Creek State Park in Ormond Beach. A beautiful, peaceful park with oaks, historic ruins & trails. It's definitely a park that will take multiple trips to cover all of the many acres of beauty she holds. The park stretches over Flagler & Ormond Beach area. So that'll tell you how big the park is. As stated on the Florida State Parks Website, Bulow Creek protects 5,600 acres, more than 1,500 of which are submerged lands. So you will definitely have lots to see. One of the great features is the Fairchild Oak, which is one of the largest live oak trees in the South. This tree is over 400 years old. That to me is just amazing. With all that the earth has been through that this tree is still standing.
Next time I hike these trails, I hope to get to the Bulow Plantation Ruins area of the park. This area stands as a monument to the sugar plantations of the 19th century. I sight that I can't wait to see. Let me know if you want to join!! Until then, have a great rest of the summer & stay cool.
