NOTE: Post contains lots of pictures.
Today’s SWF is a follow up to this week’s My World Tuesday entry. It featured a pictorial tour of one of Gainesville’s most famous places, Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at Florida Field A.K.A. The Swamp. The Swamp is home to the University of Florida’s Gator Football team. In 2006-2007, UF did something few schools have done. The Gators brought home 3 national championships in 366 days: 2006 & 2007 Men’s Basketball Champions and 2006 Football Champs. Forunately, for Ohio State they were only defeated by UF in 2 of the three championship games (Football & 2007 Basketball). Since I have already posted pictures of the Swamp this week I decided to only post pictures that included sky shots for today’s post.

That looks like a lovely day for a fieldtrip. Nice shots!
That’s a really pretty stadium. 3 championships is quite an accomplishment in such a short time.
I like the gator statue. 🙂
Those are amazing captures of such nice place!
Mine are up HERE and HERE. If you get a chance 😉 Happy SWF!
I like the avenue of palm trees. They look very unusual to this girl from northern IL.
Great pictures of the UF campus!
Earthlingorgeous, Dianne, Yen:
Anna: It is pretty amazing.
Tootie: It is very impressive.
Marnie: The street has a variety of trees not just palms. Having lived in West Texas it was strange to see so many trees.
Howdy. My 7 year-old daughter has a scavenger hunt where she needs to take a picture on or near the field. Do you know if tours are given of the stadium durin the summer? Do you have an “in” with anyone that could help? Thanks! Jim
No I just walked in during the evening when the Swamp is open for walkers. The sign says no on is allowed on the field but I saw people walk onto the field. You should be able to get down near the field.
