RICHART SPRING

One of many springs
that feed into the Meramec River.

The source of Richart Spring
starts in the front yard of our
cabin and property.

Following our recent and tragic floods,
it's good to see the land and river
restored to its natural balance.

(This shot was taken yesterday
at 6:00am, dawn's first light.)

RIVER RETREAT

Recent floods on the Meramec
have removed our access road and drive,
but the cabin remains a peaceful sanctuary.

Always worth the hike in!

FLAG IN THE ROTUNDA

Looking up at Old Glory
inside the rotunda
at the Old Court House
in St. Louis.

Built in 1839,
the old Court House
is full of history and
momentous decisions,
not the least of which 
was the Dred Scott case,
where the U.S. Supreme Court
ruled against Scott (a freed slave)
because he was not a U.S. Citizen.
That was in 1857 and only the
2nd time the Supreme Court ruled
that an Act of Congresss was
unconstitutional!

In these very halls!

BOTTLE BRUSH 
BUCKEYE

Any wonder how this bush
got its name?

Those flowers would do the job.
