This is a portion of the Red Bug Slough hiking trail in Sarasota. With all the wetlands here, Florida really isn't conducive for walking trails, so it's nice to have this one nestled on 72 acres. And, believe it or not, it's right in an urban area. The park was purchased in 2000 through Sarasota County's program to protect environmentally sensitive land. Lots of wildlife call the area home. A slough, I've learned, is a creek that runs through a marsh.
