Ortona Indian Mound Park
On the way back home from a portrait shoot in Chokoloskee, I decided to pull over at the Ortona Indian Mound Park in Moore Haven, Florida to stretch my legs and to let Sasha, my Siberian husky, out of the car. During this stop and while walking Sasha, I captured the below panoramic images around the park. Sadly, the boardwalk to the mound area of the park was under construction/maintenance and I was not able to photograph that area of the park.
Equipment used to capture the 360-degree panoramic images:
The Ortona Indian Mound Park is a 60-acre county-owned property that was deeded to Glades County by Lykes Bros., Inc. in 1973. In 1990, Glades County officials began developing a county park adjacent to the archaeologically significant Ortona Indian Mounds and two canals constructed by the aboriginal Calusa Indians, which were excavated and studied by Dr. Robert Carr of the Florida Archaeological and Historical Conservancy. The site features a 270 ft. wooden boardwalk, interpretive display, benches, and covered picnic shelter with a grill at the beginning of the Ortona Indian Mound Trail.
