The Everglades

Budget Travel recently announced their list of the Top Ten Natural Wonders to See Before They’re Lost. Unfortunately, America’s own Everglades made the list. Check out the full article and some breathtaking photos here.

It’s frustrating and sad to hear that the Everglades are declining. On a happier note, I’m happy that this road trip around America will allow me to visit this beautiful ecosystem before it deteriorates further.

“There are no other Everglades,” as they say. There simply is no other similar ecosystem. The Everglades is unique. I can’t wait to explore the multitude of islands, hike the trails, check out the array of birds, see crocodiles and alligators in the same habitat and snorkel around the area.

To have something so unique and fragile in our homeland touches my heart. I’m excited to visit and hope that we are wrong about its death sentence.

Here is the full Top 10 List of Natural Wonders to See Before They’re Lost as posted by Budget Travel:

  1. Belize Barrier Reef
  2. The Congo Basin
  3. The Dead Sea
  4. The Everglades
  5. Madagascar
  6. The Maldives
