Hurricane Ivan did a lot of damage to homes and businesses, but, with 6 foot of salt water IN the state park, there was also a huge loss of trees and plants. This is pine that basically drown in the sea water that flooded the park.
The park is replanting, here is a new tree, planted just weeks ago.
Yea, I know, really small, but, it won't be long and it will be tall and beautiful
Below, beauty in the smallest.
Below, this area was also flooded by Hurricane Ivan. The pine trees are about 6 to 10 foot tall, they all are new growth since the storm. I think if I were camping at Gulf State Park I might have to bring my chair and have a nice long sit here.
* My apologies for the skipping order of the blog posts this week. The posts are skipping around, I sorta relate! Skipping from state to state, on our run north.
