The perfect stroll

This gorgeous walk is on Cumberland Island, a national seashore bursting with wildlife and scenic views. Photographer Catie Leary writes of Cumberland Island, "There's some much to do on the island, whether it's hitting the beach, going for a hike, exploring historical ruins or just kicking back under the gorgeous live oaks... Cumberland Island is filled with a diverse range of wildlife, including armadillos, wild turkeys, vultures, manatees, sea turtles, white tail deer, bobcats, otters and so much more."
