Did a short trip with a few buddies who've never bikepacked before in the Apalachicola National Forest, sticking to west side of tallahassee and hitting up bodies of water from a start at a friends house, to my place. Left out on a Saturday afternoon(4pm) and made a little mileage, camped, and finished up the trip by lunch hte next day.

Cascade Lakes, we actually travelled on dry lake bottom. The levels are rising again, so this particular section may not be doable again for some time.
Most of the wildlife we encountered were birds, gators, and snakes. Although at night we heard boar, coyotes, and maybe bear as well.
Setup camp at Dog Lake just before night
It was a beautiful morning, fog over the lake and the sun breaking through the treeline.
