March 31, 2019 - REPORT FROM THE ROAD - "JUNGLE ROAD" DRIVE - ORCHID, FLORIDA: Later this afternoon, while zig-zagging home, I drove the length of the unpaved "Jungle Road" that winds through parts of the Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge. Thanks to Garrett Richter, who I met at a nearby park earlier, for suggesting that I drive it. This was my first time doing so and I'll be back to hike some of the side trails next time when I have a full day there. Plant search location #1308 for me. Please let me know if you want to join me sometime in your car to drive this 8-mile long unpaved road, stopping to hike at the three trails locations along the way. There were many native Snowy Squarestems , aka Salt-n-Pepper, Melanthera nivea - Asteraceae, along the way.
