September 21, 2012.Backpacking in Hercules Glades Wilderness
Lanie Crossing Long Creek, Hercules Glades Wilderness
Taking advantage of a long weekend, we took Lanie with us on a three-day backpacking trip to Hercules Glades. Our plan was to map some of the western trails with the GPS, try to find the Spring we think Rock Spring Trail is named after, and show Lanie the falls.
We had a great time and did manage to find the spring! Though the falls were dry, so no playing in the water. You can read more about our trip over on Ozarks Walkabout:
