Hiking it was. Missouri is more hilly than Nebraska. We also saw 2 lizards, those we wouldn't see in Nebraska at all. They were too fast and hidden to get good photos of. It was still neat-o to see lizards!
More than anything I just wanted to get away from the city life for a few hours.
Up in the trees:
My boys hiking away:
They're always waiting on my to take pictures.
I find likens, mushrooms and moss interesting:
It's like natures shelving system! I think my favorite nature photo is the picture to the right under this line of type.
It almost looks like someone took red thread to this tree:
Moss on a dead tree:
I don't think I'd try eating these mushrooms:
Rocks that are different from Nebraska:
Missouri is the cave state. They had a grouping of rocks that was an overhang. Not really a cave, but still cave like.
Us! I got more photos, but Mica's into putting a creepy face on just for giggles!
No creepy faces with either boy here though:
Me, "Smile Mica!"
I've never seen anything like this caterpillar in Nebraska either:
What about you? When you're in a busy tourist type place do you feel the need to get away from it all like I do?
