    We had a good hike along the Aucilla River Sinks May 18th. Two of us walked right by a rattlesnake that was only a couple feet away, obviously not seeing the well-disguised diamond-back pattern in dappled lighting against the multicolored ground cover. We also surprised a half-dozen armadillos eating and traveling together just off the trail. The black-water sinks lined with limestone ledges were lovely, the deep woods not too hot (it was warmer in the pine upland portions), the comaraderie great and the wildlife and plants interesting. Afterward, we sat at a picnic table at Goose Pasture Landing, enjoying the nice breeze and eating lunch. I won the battle against ticks with proper clothing, treated in advance, and topical DEET the day of the hike. Our next hike there will be in the colder months. Thanks to Toni, Deb and Lori for taking pictures!
