View from the top, part II
I've been to three of Florida's "towers" in the last month. I went to the beautiful Bok Tower in Lake Wales twice (I chronicled a trip to the top in an earlier blog.) I traveled to White Springs to see the Stephen Foster Memorial. And then this weekend, I went to the Citrus Tower in Clermont. As I read "I Lost It All to Sprawl", I was struck by the contrast of the experiences, especially the differences between Bok and the Citrus Tower, separated by maybe 50 miles of US 27. Here's some video I took at the top, starting first at the last remaining Citrus grove and panning to the development that is abundant in Central Florida.
