4801 Camp Ranch Rd, Gainesville, FL
I would like to suggest a nature photoshoot at La Chua Trail in Gainesville. The trail is at the north end of Payne's Prairie and the total length is about 3 miles round trip if we go all the way to the observation tower/platform. A small part is on a type of wooden boardwalk and the rest is in the wide open. I've been there a few times and I have taken picture of the wild horses, the bison several birds, beautiful foliage and yes gators. You will be on the trail up close and personal with nature. I'm hoping that with the cooler weather, the alligators will be out and sunbathing. Every time I've been there I've seen the wild horses but there is no guarantee you will get to see the bison. This won't be a guided tour so we can walk at our own pace. There is a $4.00 (It's a state park) per car fee but if we meet before hand we can talk fewer cars.
