Klondike Park

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.

Looks very pretty. If people see a sign that says NO some are bound and determined to do just what it says not too. Paula

When we went to Missouri we got a t-shirt for Katy that says "Katy Trail".   lol.  Pretty funny.  I think we bought it in St. Charles. Actually, no, we came home and then emailed them and bought it over the web b/c the shop was closed.  I think it was the tourism department or state park office or something.  I think I also put that shirt in our last yard sale b/c it was too small now for her.  lol
Anyway, I always liked the fact that there is a Katy trail.
