Lake Okeechobee

Description:

As lake, waterway and surrounding countryside, Okeechobee shows the many faces of Florida. A canopy of moss-draped live oaks hides clusters of sabal palms. A tangle of water plants marks the boundary where wetland meets lakeshore. A lone alligator suns on a riverbank in a deceptively calm moment. Wild birds take flight in a sudden explosion of motion. Between the muted pastels of dawn and the brilliant display of sunset, Okeechobee is for all who love the outdoors.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
