“in central florida!”
The Ocala National Forest ls the second largest nationally protected forest in the United States and covers of Central Florida. It is located three miles (5 km) east of Ocala and southeast of Gainesville. The Ocala National Forest, established in 1908, is the oldest national forest east of the Mississippi River and the southernmost national forest in the continental U.S. The word Ocala is thought to be a derivative of a Timucuan Indian term meaning "fair land" or "big hammock". The forest is headquartered in Tallahassee, as are all three National Forests in Florida, but there are local ranger district offices located in Silver Springs and Umatilla.
We drove through here and it was a wonderful drive. It was Bike Week and we saw a bunch of motorcycles. I'd go back and try to find some black bears in the wild...safely from my vehicle of course.
