Today’s hike takes us to Painted Rock Conservation Area. We’ve had too much rain over the last several days. Southeast Missouri is experiencing floods at this time. Needless to say, I was itching to get out and make some trails out in Missouri outdoors.
I headed out from 1 of the 3 parking areas at Painted Rock CA and began my trek going on a gentle downhill slope. I came to a creek and follow it downwards as I made my way to the Osage River.
During my hike, I came across some pretty flowers, a turtle, a small snake, which I believe is a Blue Racer Hatchling. The greatest reward was finding 2 mushrooms. As I began my trek back to the vehicle, I scrambled up a bluff area to get to higher ground and began turning eastward to get back to the vehicle.
The weather was wonderful today and I enjoyed this hike very much. I may do this one again in the near future.
