Missouri's Natural Springs

We spent the week in Southern Missouri in the Mark Twain National Forest.  It is a beautiful area of the country we had never visited before.  We met some fellow campers who invited us to a natural spring swimming hole deep in the forest.  The water was crystal clear!  We spent the afternoon wading in the water and introduced our new friends to Leave No Trace.  After leaving the forest, we traveled up to
Ha Ha Tonka State Park. We encountered a lovely, elderly woman named Rose while hiking to Missouri's 12th largest natural spring.  She was 92 years old and excited to hear about our adventures.  She encouraged us to live life to the fullest because you never know what the future holds!  Thanks Rose.
Safe Travels...
