So, if you're planning a trip to the Everglades, you should probably plan it for a sunny day. If you do find yourself there in the middle of a downpour however, at least remember to bring your umbrellas. If you do not have umbrellas, large colorful beach umbrellas may suffice.
Except of course, while you're bumbling around with your gigantic beach umbrellas, you're probably not going to see any alligators. Because alligators, much like tourists, would much rather be out in the sun than the pouring down rain.
There will be plenty of vultures though.
After you have gotten yourself thoroughly soaked, laugh hysterically at your own misfortune as you slop back to your car and start driving, the rain will probably stop now.
The RIGHT Way:
Take more pictures.
When you're fairly sure that the rain has stopped, turn around and proceed back to your first stop. If there is now sun, there will also be alligators. Lots and lots of alligators.
Oh, and about those vultures, they will attack your car. Enter at your own risk and maybe even use a tarp. They stalk that rubber with pretty hungry eyes.
Have you ever been to the Everglades? Would you say you did it the right way… or the wrong way?
p.s. What's more frightening, an alligator or a vulture? Alligator may be the most obvious choice, but I'll tell you, those vultures are creepy. Honestly, I'm still undecided.
