Sunsets, like childhood, are viewed with wonder not just because they are BEAUTIFUL but  because they are fleeting ~

My Hike to The Big River to View Beautiful Colors

3 Comments

This was taken on the Big River here in Missouri at the waterfall. I have several spots I go to capture my photography. Here is a little history

autumn peggy franz photos
The Big River is a tributary of the Meramec River in east-central Missouri. The river rises in western Iron County, near the summit of Johnson Mountain and the locale of Enough; it flows through Washington County, Saint Francois County, and Jefferson County. It forms part of the boundary between Jefferson County and Saint Francois County and also part of the boundary between Jefferson County and Washington County. It empties into the Meramec River opposite Eureka, where the Meramec forms the border between Jefferson County and Saint Louis County. The river flows through Washington State Park, St. Francois State Park, and the Lead Belt mining district. Like many other Ozark streams, the Big River has entrenched meanders; its valley is typically about half a mile wide, sometimes much narrower, and the valley is usually from 150 to 400 feet (46 to 120 m) deep.

Well I had to do it!! I tried 5x tis year to get up it and finally scored !! Yeah! This is a old fire tower close to where I live. It is about 250 feet in the air ugg. I also am going to show you a video of the tower. I did not make this, but I wanted you to see what I did just to capture these photos. I did freak a little ,so I had to hurry I was shaking.

Now here are the beautiful pictures that I captured. I hope you enjoy! I sure did once I was down on the ground and my legs were not shaking. There is some that is not my greatest photography , but still worth it.
