We visited Big Sugar Creek State Park and walked the Ozark Chinquapin Trail there, very nice.
And we visited Wilson's Creek National Battlefield. The Battle of Wilson's Creek in 1861 opened the Civil War in Missouri. There were many battles and skirmishes in MO during the war. We learn so much in our travels. Lots of nice hiking there as well.
We also visited Springfield, the capital, where we checked out some nice breweries!
Finally, we visited the George Washington Carver NM. Very Interesting! Learned a lot about this important figure!
