The bend in Florida is one of my favorite places to drive through. I used to make the trek at least once a year, on the way to my grandparent's house (not quite over the river and through the woods, but close). It's an extremely flat landscape, filled with pines, oaks and palmetto palms. It's hot, dry and dusty, and instead of the red dirt I see here every day, there is sandy soil. The whole area seems to be on it's own agenda, and most of the buildings look like they've been trapped in a different era. A great place to drive through, but I'll have to tell you, I've never actually stopped. Below are some pictures from my trip to Orlando, will recap with more detail later.
