View this post on Instagram The Senator, what was an estimated 3,500 year old bald cypress tree, in 2011 was a short detour off the Florida Trail in Big Tree Park.

28d 10h 00m, is the new Florida Trail self-supported speed record. This was way harder than I thought it would be. Although my overall average was 39mpd I realized halfway through I was off pace by a couple days, so the second half of this hike I don't think my milage dipped below 40 more […]
