A fossilized coral

After leaving John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park for the two hour drive to Key West, I stopped at Windley Key Fossil Reef Geological State Park. This park was the site of a quarry in the early twentieth century, and now the exposed rock showcases many fossil of reef animals, particularly corals. There are also a couple miles of trails through the park's forest with signs and a guide that talk about the park, its history, and its wildlife.
