Jewel Key, Everglades National Park, Florida, USA
USA

The Everglades National Park covers a good portion of southern Florida from coastal islands to the inland "river of grass." Here at its northwestern edge, the park overlaps the southern portion of the Ten Thousand Islands, a maze of small islands and winding waterways. Nearly all of the island land above water is covered by mangroves. The resemblance of one island to the next and the winding waterways among them (many without exit) give the area the sense of a vast labyrinth. Navigation by map or prior experience is usually required!


At Jewel Key, storms have carved out a small beach which is open to camping by kayakers or other boating enthusiasts.  Reservations must be made at the park headquarters in Everglades City.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
