Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge, Florida
It's after Labor Day and normally the hot and humid weather of a Florida Summer would be starting to wain. That would set the stage to get out and explore the 450 acres of dikes and ponds at Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge near DeLeon Springs, Florida, our favorite Central Florida wildlife spot. But 16 inches of rain from one recent storm, and more on the way, has turned the area into one big lake. Chris Friesen of DeLand, Florida sent us this photo of what the normally dry entranceway looks like right now. So unless you have a canoe to explore the area, I suggest you spend your time hiking and biking at some of the other Florida locations listed in our books.
