Last Two New Parks Day
In the morning we went to Wilson Creek NBP (park 252). I thought I knew most of the major battlefields of the Civil War. In fact, I was excited to go to Pea Ridge because I believed that was the “last one” I needed to see. Not true. I did not even know about this place until last month and it is a large, really well preserved and very well administrated park in south Missouri. A real treat this morning was to visit this place. We then drove west along US 60 East, a familiar road in an unfamiliar place. Our stop was another Wild and Scenic River, the Ozark (park 253). We found a decent US Forest Service campground for $5 and then drove to an old CCC built resort that is sadly fading. There are plans to restore it but it is a shame it got to this state. Lots of springs in this area.
Cadillac’s Most Correct Viewpoint
No Moose for miles. No speeches to give cause no people for miles. No ice cream for days. No lattes for miles. No letters from Ms. McKinley. I’m going to bed wake me when life as I know it returns.
