Where I stayed
Big Spring Campground, Ozark National Scenic Riverway
Next, we headed to Alley Spring to see the Mill, beautiful spring, and one room school. This spring is blue colored because it is so deep. We found a beautiful picnic site in the large area that used to be the state park campground. Last, we drove to Blue Spring along Missouri Highway 106. The last three miles took us down a gravel road to the trailhead and a half mile walk to the spring. This deep blue spring is similar to Alley Spring and possibly even prettier
By 4:00 we were home at the coach. We had driven 180 miles through some of the most beautiful forests of the Ozark region. Along the way, we picked up 6 passport stamps.
Suddenly we realized that our sightseeing for the trip is complete. Tomorrow we drive home (to our official place of residence). We are sorry to end the great adventure, but it is always best to quit while you are still having fun. Besides, we have all of those horrible things to do like dentists, doctors, financial advisors, etc. The coach will be emptied, winterized, cleaned (not looking forward to that job !!), and put into storage for a couple of months.
