RIVER RETREAT

Recent floods on the Meramec
have removed our access road and drive,
but the cabin remains a peaceful sanctuary.

Always worth the hike in!

FLAG IN THE ROTUNDA

Looking up at Old Glory
inside the rotunda
at the Old Court House
in St. Louis.

Built in 1839,
the old Court House
is full of history and
momentous decisions,
not the least of which 
was the Dred Scott case,
where the U.S. Supreme Court
ruled against Scott (a freed slave)
because he was not a U.S. Citizen.
That was in 1857 and only the
2nd time the Supreme Court ruled
that an Act of Congresss was
unconstitutional!

In these very halls!

BOTTLE BRUSH 
BUCKEYE

Any wonder how this bush
got its name?

Those flowers would do the job.

ROUND BALES
IN THE FIELD

Spring grasses have been
cut and baled.

Round bales drying and
dotting pastures,
ready to feed livestock
  when the weather turns.
