Digging Deeper into Missouri

I continue my journey to see all of the 90+ Missouri State Parks and Historic Sites.  Some of these places are incredibly remote.  I just can’t imagine many people visit Clark’s Hill or the Osage Village. I am pleased to say that I have.

Just an ordinary Saturday…

I traveled across Missouri for a Science Olympiad Tournament, stumbled on to a state park, and discovered a little coffee shop. Not a bad day. 

Knob Noster gets its name from a few hills (called knobs).  Noster means ‘our’ in the indiginous people’s language from this area. 

Hiking in the winter means no ticks, no mosquitoes, and no other people.  Peace.

One of several lakes.

These are not the correct knobs.

This stream floods the road often

Friendly, welcoming place

The coffee passed the test. Excellent

Pastries. I tried the kolache.
