My family took me to Alexander Springs for a Mother's Day hike. Alexander Springs is located in Ocala National Forest in Central Florida, about an hour west of Daytona Beach. This particular spring is really wonderful for small children, because much of the swimming area is very shallow. Even my 2 year old was able to walk all the way across one part of the swimming area with her dad. Most of my pictures from the trip, however, are from the wonderful hiking trail. I hope you like them.
