Beauty in the fog

While the flowers are hidden in the fog, you can really see the spider webs.

The fog was pretty thick during my trip to Circle B Bar Reserve in late December. It usually burns off by 10 am but this particular morning it was still around when I left at noon.

At least you can still spot the gators on the trail.

A few more shots of history from my walk through Heritage Village in Largo in mid-December.
