Storm over the Everglades

The old Alligator Alley Road - or Highway 41


These beautiful sun ray came up after the sun disappeared


Have you ever seen a cloud like this? It looks more like a U.F.O. for me


It was of course NOT a U.F.O. even I would love to see one, though


It was dark already like in the night - but it was only around 3 p.m.


Can you imagine how high this wall of clouds were and to see this strange formation of that little cloud coming up - it was just a overwhelming feeling and very exciting

The last time we drove trough the Everglades to Naples, FL a BIG storm came up. Immediately, the sky got dark, scary lightning flashed and then, the rain poured. In seconds the road was flooded and we had to stop and wait until the worst was over.

Then it was a magic game of mother nature, fantastic to watch, something I will never forget!



There is only one Everglades in the World.

Everglades National Park is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. The area boasts rare and endangered species, such as the American crocodile, Florida panther, and West Indian manatee. It has been designated an International Biosphere Reserve, a World Heritage Site, and a Wetland of International Importance, in recognition of its significance to all the people of the world.
