Swampy says Happy Eat Outside Day & Trail Mix Day!

Trilby, Zuber & Alva celebrate Eat Outside Day by celebrating National Trail Mix Day. The trio takes a healthy hike along Tarkiln Bayou Preserve State Park, west of Pensacola. Carting a load of trail mix gives the merry band an even healthier snack to maintain the energy for the hike back to the trailhead.
