Camping and Exploring

We went back to River Front Camp Ground.

It wasn't a great weekend to camp being in the 50's & low 60's, and cloudy. But no rain. We found out the Bagnell Dam was open with free tours this weekend. It's the second time it has been opened since 9/11.

We took advantage of the tour and went with it.
This dam was made in the 1920's in about 18 months. They flooded so many towns and made the Lake of the Ozarks.

Some water trickling down.

Couldn't take any pictures on the inside, it was very impressive with the all the workings.

Mean while back at the camp ground standing on the bridge, over the stocked pond .

Looking in the other direction on the bridge.

Look at the roots on this tree in the river. There were a few trees like this.

There was a few of these types of trees too. It looked like 3-4 trees grew into each other.

See the hole in the bottom of this tree?

You can see right through it. Strange huh?

Another view of the tree

There were also a few ducks that lives here also.

I think this one has to be one of the older ones, he walked a little slower then the rest of them.

Even though it was chilly(last night I dug out the winter coat),it was a relaxing weekend.

Isn't that what it's all about?
