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.

Vultures on the Hillsborough River

Vultures on the Hillsborough River in Florida

While canoeing the Hillsborough River near Tampa, Florida, we looked up in the trees to see a group of vultures huddling up on this unusual cold day in the 40s. It was a beautiful contrast with the brilliant blue sky in the background with a dead tree, Spanish moss and the carnivorous vultures waiting for their next meal to die. The Hillsborough River State Park is a great place for an adventure with several miles of great canoeing and hiking.
