Default A trip to Avery Island Jungle Gardens

I just uploaded a ton of pictures from our trip to the home of Tobasco sauce.
Banana Gallery - Avery Island jungle gardens
The weather was perfect and there were not many people there on a Monday. History of Avery Island where Hot and Legendary TABASCO® Sauce is Made!
Here are a few of the pictures......

There is a cool video on the page about how they make Tabasco. Funny thing is I just last week watched a show on TV about how they make it!

I owe a great deal to the good people at Tobasco....they helped me scarf down many M.R.E.'s over the years.
It's funny how looking at your pics, one would think that you were in some really exotic land. Great stuff.

Thanks Pete. We do not use our camera enough. I just took pictures constantly throughout the trip and culled through them later.
I love going there b/c it's a lot of what I want my backyard to look like eventually. No grass, just jungle with trails, sitting areas, and clearings.

Brings back memories. Thanks for posting. I was there a few years ago and loved it, I was stopping all along the way for pictures as most people just drove on through and didn't take time to notice all that's really there. I had read a book on alligators by E.A. Mc Ilhenny about alligators and the bird city ,the jungle gardens and their creation was described pretty well.
I hope you didn't buy any of the red painted dowels they sell to the tourists Any alligator pics? One ate a nutria while I was there....very cool!

You are right. Most people just drove through or maybe got out and looked at just the immediate area. There are a few trails here and there that are worth walking down.
I did'nt think to take pictures of the alligators. I see them so much around here I guess I take them for granted.
