“What’s there?” I asked.
“I don’t know,” he said. “But I’ve heard of it and I want to go.”
Well, we now KNOW what’s here and it’s really not to our taste. Besides the humongous crowds, we’re not into country and western music. I don’t know a lot of the entertainers and the ones I do know, I’m not so sure I WANT to see them. Anyone remember Barry Williams? Even during the Brady Bunch fame, I didn’t think he could sing all that well.
So, I searched for other things to do and hit the jackpot.
Dogwood Canyon Nature Park (http://www.dogwoodcanyon.org/) is about 25 miles away in Lampe, MO and has a 6.4 mile nature walk (well, it’s 3.2 miles long, but you walk one way and you HAVE to walk back). But if walking isn’t your thing, they also have a tram tour that takes you along the same walkway, but also into an animal park. Or you can rent a bike and pedal your way. We visited the park on Sunday and walked (my feet felt it, too). It was a beautiful day and the park is gorgeous. I’m so glad I found it in the AAA Tour Book. So is my husband!
I did take lots of pictures and once I get them off my camera, I’ll share some with you. You all love my pictures, right? Right??
Today we might take the Scenic Railway (provided we can get tickets). As for taking in a show? Yeah, not happening.
Tomorrow we head for
. I hear it’s been raining a LOT down there.
Sure hope it’s finished by the time we arrive! San
On our drive to Branson, we did stop in
and I bought some Rams T-shirts. I
wore one Sunday and apparently it worked! The Rams WON!! It apparently also
helped the Steelers. They won their first game this season! Whoo hoo!!! I LOVE
my T-shirt! It must have magical powers. St. Louis
It was nice being in Rams territory where there are FANS around. I rarely get that in
It would have been nice to watch the game (as I’m sure it was on TV here), but
we didn’t come down here to watch football, we came here to sight-see and we’ll
sight-see gosh darn it! Dayton
