Can there be a place in Florida where legendary cryptids and legendary ghosts come out together to play?  If so, it seems like a great place to bring Tripping on Legends with Kids to get the full picture of what might be inspiring the haunted folklore in Sarasota.

Natalie Crist, Christopher Balzano, and Chris’ kids travel to Myakka River State Park to hunt down three legends which have given the woods and the swamp an eerie reputation.  After checking in on the Headless Camper again, the Trippers spend their time looking for the notorious Skunk Ape and the ghosts of suicide victims at the Canopy Walkway and Tower.  Not all that that is spoken of there is true, but not all of what they experienced is spoken about in the legends.

Check out Christopher Balzano’s books, including the newly released Haunted Ocala National Forest
