When we headed home from St. Louis on Labor Day, Charlene and Pat thought we'd enjoy Klondike Park. As I've mentioned before, the country south and west of St. Louis is amazing.
There was a steep trail going up to an observation area which Charlene said they'd never taken time to use. I love going to the top of hills or mountains, just to see what lies below. So we began our trek.
The view was fantastic. This was one of the best thirty-minute off-the-road site I've visited.
By the way, if you google Klondike Park, you'll find it's very common for people to rock-climb (despite signs saying "no rock climbing") and fall, injuring themselves.
