Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Take a walk on the planked trail at Highland’s Hammock State Park in Florida for a beautiful elevated trip through a cypress swamp. When people think of Florida, everyone thinks the Everglades. The state has a bountiful reserve of state parks, rivers, and lakes worth checking out from the Panhandle to the Keys. Come and explore the Everglades, but there are other adventure travel options in the state as well.
