Many people have heard of the famous pepper sauce Tabasco, but many have not heard about the Jungle Gardens that sit upon and island salt dome that is eight miles deep. This area was home to Edward McIlhenny the founder of Tabasco Pepper Sauce. Mr. McIlhenny helped saved the Snowy Egret from extinction in 1895 as its feathers were often used for women’s hats. He created a sanctuary for them. His Jungle Gardens represent a plant and wildlife sanctuary like none other. A paradise for birds and wildlife and a preserve area for all to enjoy. Every time I visit, I am enthralled by the beauty, sounds, texture, and tranquility. Here are a few photos that capture just a small portion of the beauty. I hope you enjoy them and consider a visit of Tabasco and The Jungle Gardens yourself. For more information visit the link below.
