I needed to get out of the house and Danelle needed some peace and quiet for her school work. So I packed up the kids and drove to Castlewood State Park. There, I wanted to hike a trail that overlooks the Meramec river. We did hike it for a short time, but the kids and flooding river didn’t let it happen quite the way I wanted.
The lower trail was impassable and the kids didn’t want to hike much more, so it was a short out and back. Lucky for Danelle, its a bit of a drive, giving her a 3 hour reprieve from all of us!
