Two friends and I decided to go hiking yesterday due to a high of 76. (Is it really May? In Florida?) HAD to take advantage of the perfect weather and spend the day outdoors. We decided to drive over to Torreya State Park, which is about 45 minutes west of Tallahassee. It is located on the grounds of Confederate artillery battery built during the Civil War. It is also the home of a plantation house that was built before the Civil War! I fell in love with the beautiful trails and overlooks of the Apalachicola River. Here are a few pictures I took while on the hike.
