Missouri’s Natural Beauty

11 Comments

 

Well visited one of my favorite place to go which is Pickle Springs Park in St.Genevieve Missouri which also is very close to Farmington ,Missouri. 

 Explore a geological wonderland that is a National Natural Landmark.

 View scenic waterfalls and cool box canyons that harbor unusual plants and animals.

 Enjoy the blossoms of rose azalea along the sandstone valley in the spring.

 This scenic natural area contains all sorts of fascinating sandstone rock formations including box canyons and wet weather waterfalls. The sandstone rock here is the Lamotte sandstone that was formed from sandy beaches of a shallow ocean that existed here 500 million years ago. 

Missouri has so much to offer as far as beauty of nature and wildlife.

Well, I got to get out a little bit during the snow storm and very cold temps. I only went one place as it was just to cold. I am ready for spring. Don’t get me wrong I love snow , just not the extreme cold temps. Hope you enjoy!

Old Chevy Truck 1950’s

1 Comment

I just love this vintage trucks. Hope you ENJOY! as much as I have.

FUN FACTS :

The 1950 model year brought about the end of the postwar seller’s market. Now, suddenly, America‘s insatiable appetite for anything on wheels came to an abrupt halt. Buyers were starting to pick and choose again (though they would make 1950 a record-setting year for car and truck purchases, spurred on to some degree by the start of war in Korea). Trucks had sold well during the previous four years, and Chevrolet had topped the market; total Chevy truck registrations had reached 345,519 by ’49. But with buyers now in control, Detroit recognized that the sales race was about to heat up. 
Even so, not much changed on 1950 Chevrolet trucks. Horsepower and torque did increase by two on the Thrift-Master, to 92 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and 176 pound-feet at 1,000-2,000 rpm, thanks mainly to a revised Rochester carburetor and slightly bigger exhaust valves. Tubular rear shocks became standard, and the three-quarter-ton pickup now used eight-leaf front springs.

The adventure today was so incredible! Who new going out today hiking would take me through time. I laugh now because who knew that a 2 mile hike would feel like 10 miles because of the terrain. Boulders and rocks,cliffs and springs that were all over Crawling in and out , Through narrow rock walkways and cavelike walk ing paths with the coldest water dripping down. JUST BEAUTIFUL! YOU JUST NEVER KNEW WHAT WAS NEXT…

I will wake up tomorrow feeling my adventure lol… Here are some facts and some fun pictures of my hiking fun. 

This is a Natural  Spring  and ends up into this beautiful pond of crystal clear water.
