Fort Pierce Inlet State Park
Unlike California, the state it's most often compared to, Florida only has about five habitats: swamps, savannahs, hammocks, scrub forests, and shores. Most tourists only know the latter. I don't find anything wrong or mysterious about this: shores reflect the purest - and the only hygienic - facet of the state; the rest, broadly speaking, is a hot nest of subtropical disease, parasitism, poison, venom, sharpness, rot, and discomfort. You can find beauty off its beaches, but to speak honestly about Florida means to speak of the state in its entirety, including the filth and evil of its interior. Snakes hide in palms and worse hide in its wetlands.
