DAYTRIPPIN' - "Heading out on Lakeside Forest Trail"

by Brenda Nelson February. 12, 2013 3404 views

Larry and I found this beautiful trail along a high bluff in Branson, Missouri last Sunday afternoon. It took us to an old homestead that had long rock walls all around it. And some of the spring flowers were just beginning to pop up following an over-night rain shower! Such a pretty day!!

Heading into the forest

This trail begins right beside one of the busiest highways anywhere - 76 Country Blvd - through the theaters and hotels of Branson, Missouri, where over 7 million people visit each year!

Heading up the wooden staircase

Puddles from the overnight rainfall lead to rock stairs

This small wandering jew was about the size of my fist and was growing in a solid rock!

Heading along the rock bluff

Following the 6-foot walls

A huge bowl-shaped rock held water from the night's rain

Heading back to civilization
