Head east on Fort Pickens Road from Pensacola Beach. It's the only east-west road on the eastern end of island.
The road into Fort Pickens reopened on Memorial Day Weekend after being closed by Hurricanes Ivan (2004) and Hurricane Dennis (2005) and a few tropical storms in 2005. Wildlife, such as the snowy egret shown, took over the road way areas. This photo, and the other of the blue heron, were taken in a "drive-by shooting" from the car.
