When we think of wilderness areas, we often imagine mountains, gorges, white water rapids, deserts, etc. We don't have those in Florida, but we do have wilderness areas that are unique to our part of the country. You won't find alligators basking in the sun in Michigan or huge sandhill cranes searching for food in Alaska.
So take time to explore the wild areas that we have here in central Florida in and around Pasco County. Some possibilities are the following:
