Between my spring classes ending and my summer classes starting, I want to go on a vacation. The focus of the trip will be photography and birding. I would like to be far enough north/south/west of here that the species would be substantially different from those I know. Ideally I would prefer to stay someplace rural or at a park/nature preserve where there interesting critters and plants are just outside my door. Other than nature, an area that is home to lots of artists would be a plus. I initially considered Yellowstone but the timing iffy for a trip there.

This post is a place to tuck the possibilities as I find them. I would love to have additional suggestions.


Some place in the Florida keys

Birding is really popular where I lived in South Texas. People go to Aransas Pass, by North Padre, to see the whoopers.

Santa Fe. It's got birds and artists. And the spa at Ojo Caliente is only a few hours drive and worth the $25 or whatever they charge for the day.

How is the weather in Vermont in mid to late May?

Similar to Indiana in early May-- you'd get to go through spring again, lilacs and all. :)

Since you mentioned the Florida Keys, I have to suggest the Dry Tortugas.

They are about 50 miles west of Key West and in the Spring they are nesting places of some species of birds that don't stop anywhere else in the world.

oh....and the snorkeling is awesome too.

It's a national park and you would need to take a ferry and bring camping stuff.
