Maramec Spring Park, Missouri

12 Aug

A pretty place to visit after 12 hours on the road.  A windy road to get there though but most scenic. 

I don’t care how hot it’s been, I still love the summer months.  Right now it’s so pretty outside with threatening sky looming in the West.  They say it will rain over the Red River this evening.  If only that will dip down just a few miles and get our town a little wet.   The cost of hay…

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.      ~Robert Frost

    I love this picture- I think I could just sit there for a while-

    I also love the Robert Frost poem- it’s one of my favorites.. and I have felt recentlythat I’ve taken the road less traveled and I’m certain I’m going to be glad I did .

    Pretty place? Is it safe to swim or are there gators in it?
