Hidden on St Louis University’s campus, the MOCRA shines. Open to the public.
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.
A brilliantly sunny November day lured us to one of Missouri’s best state parks – Meramac. Although I didn’t notice a single bird, we did find a wasp carting away an immobilized spider, a woodchuck basking in the sun, frogs glistening in Sheep’s Cave, and tadpoles and minnows dancing around in the creeks. The Sycamore’s stark white bark reflected the bright rays of the sun in a spectacular fashion. A chilly morning hike followed by lunch on the river and accented by the exploration of a cave provided us with a stunning backdrop for a day out with friends.
In the Kahana area in west Maui, there are quite a few peaceful coves and perfect snorkeling areas. But elsewhere on the island the waves are magnificently brutal. Here are some rocky coasts with crashing white waves.
