Ozarks

Hollow – Just a typical Ozarks hollow. But, not just a typical picture. I decided to take a stereo pair. If you can manage to get your eyes to merge the two pictures, you can see it in glorious 3D. 2 pictures

Camped above Little Paddy Creek – Paddy Creek Wilderness Day Three. 2 pictures

Photograph taken in the late fall of 2020 where the Big Piney Trail crosses Paddy Creek, Paddy Creek Wilderness.

Paddy Creek – Three-fifteen, and I’d only just crossed Paddy Creek. With a long way to go, I stopped just long enough to fill up with water and take a picture.

Bones – I say it every winter. I love this time of year when the bones of the land are laid bare. Paddy Creek Wilderness Day Two. November 2020.

Bar sign: “Extreme Midget Wrestling” Only in the Ozarks (I hope).

Uphill – Day Three and out … It seems that most trips finish at the top of a climb. One-minute read, 4 pictures

Another Overhang Campsite and my Home for the Night on Monday – I had just worked my way around the edge of a big deep pool when I spotted what looked like another overhang behind the trees. Two-minute read, 7 pictures

Campsite Under an Overhang – This charming spot has ready access to the creek, and I could have easily hung my hammock between a couple of the trees. I was keen to see where the trail led, so I spent a few minutes scouting around and took a couple of pictures before carrying on. One-minute read, 3 pictures

Day Two – and another six-mile hike. From the Bluffs to The Falls, and onward. Two-minute read, 5 pictures

Prickly Pear – I found a whole bunch of these. The new shoots almost match the color of my rain poncho! 2 pictures

Sunset from the bluffs overlooking Beaver Creek – massively processed to make a ‘meh’ sunset look average.

Twin Falls. I discovered these twin 20′ falls on an intermittent creek at Hercules Glades Wilderness. 3 pictures

Small Falls on ‘Cab Creek’ – These falls might be small, but they were making a lot of noise.

McGarr Ridge Trail – This sums up hiking in the Ozarks at the moment. Bare trees and fallen leaves.

My home from home – Tucked up on the side of a hollow to keep out of the wind. 2 pictures

There ought to be a coyote in this picture … but I can’t find it. I was sitting here drinking a nice hot cup of chocolate when some movement in the ravine opposite caught my eye.
