I have been slowly visiting all the State Parks and Historic Sites in Missouri. There are a total of 52 State Parks and 35 Historic Sites. In one weekend I managed to visit 11. During this trip, my favorite locations were the Battle of Island Mound and Watkins Glen Historic Site.

A week of flowers from my evening walk…
I took these photos while doing my daily walk for health. Finding interesting material for my art projects is keeping me more fit.
The thistle provided a few interesting shots.
Speaking of art…
My favorite exhibits at the Laumeier Sculpture Park…
A living museum in Faust Park.
I decided to go out to the woods to see what was waiting for me today. Sometimes in my hectic life, I forget that other living organisms exist. It only took about five steps into the forest before I stumbled on to my old friends.
