Don's Blog On the Trail Again 10-23-16

After working on the house and getting the gardens ready for winter we are on the trail again today. The weather is perfect - sunny , 74 degrees, and a slight breeze which is causing cascades of yellow, orange, and tan leaves to fall. We are on the Chubb Trail in West Tyson County Park which is our favorite park and less than 20 minutes from home. The trail starts on bed rock, 

and winds through peaceful Missouri hardwood forest,

with many limestone features and outcroppings.

Unfortunately in the last few years it has been discovered by mountain bikers
most of whom are friendly and courteous. But the scenery is spectacular

And the nearby Mermen River is awesome in the fall afternoon light. The river flows by the western edge of Kirkwood on its way to the Mississippi.
