    Ozarks foothills

    This is my first post to the forum, xo its kind of a test. Saturday was a gorgeous day here in the extreme SW corner of Missouri. I went looking for fall colors, saw a few, but the trees are just beginning to turn. Took this photo from a hillside public road that you have to cross cattle guards to use. Ah the pleasure of owning a GS!!

    Played Hookey Friday

    Last Friday I had a client meeting near the Arkansas Line that lasted til noon. I had no desire to go back to the office, so I played hookey and tried some new roads and some familiar friends. It was overcast, but pleasant. Took some pics of some local sights.
    This first one is north of Noel, Missouri on Hwy 59. Falling rocks takes on a new dimension here.

    Historic Dam Site

    Here is the low water crossing and remains of the old mill dam on Big Sugar Creek at Cyclone, Missouri. I was here in the Spring, but chose not to make the crossing as there was about 8 inches of water flowing across the road. This time I crossed and found some delightful dirt roads. There are some very reclusive people down here so one must respect there right to privacy, so I stayed on the main roads.

    Cool Back roads in the Ozarks

    this is just a shot of one of the backroads I was on. I could ride all day on these Had a great day. We are still waiting for full fall colors here (10/15), but they are just around the corner I'm sure.

    Very nice.

    I have not really had a chance to enjoy any foliage in New England so I am going to try for a long weekend in the Southeast. You pictures are getting me motivated...

    Thanks for posting them.

    Best,

    Tom,

    You've shown me parts of Missouri I would have never expected. Those were terrific!

    Do you have lots of dirt to ride there?

    Great Shots!! You are letting out some great secrets about your state. I used to come to missouri to fish, and I think I will have to get back for the riding. Very nice people and beautiful scenery. thanks again for sharing.

    Thanks for the shots

    Great pics. One of my favorite riding memories is going through Missouri (though not on dirt roads). I love the Ozarks and the way the highway is cut through them.
    I spent a night sleeping on a picnic table near the Western border because it was summer time and every motel, hotel and campground was full. When the weather is good, make reservations in the Ozarks!
    I also love some of the wine from Missouri. And the people are great. Other than that, I can't stand the place!
    Thanks for sparking those pleasant thoughts with your fine photos.
