My husband and I travel extensively around the United States and Canada in our motorhome from a home base in St. Augustine, Florida. With all that traveling, the Silver River remains one of my favorite places to photograph wildlife. The river is located east of Ocala in Florida. The thirty springs that comprise Silver Springs form the headwaters of this river and its clear waters flow through dense cypress swamp for almost 5 miles before it feeds into the Ocklawaha River. The area is accessible through Silver Springs State Park and Ray Wayside Park.
