I’ve heard from outdoor friends about Don Robinson State park. It has an interesting history from an interesting guy. Don bought land trying to create a place the size of Central Park in New York City. Don Robinson is 800 acres while Central Park is slightly bigger. The hiking trails are supposed to be good and I wanted to go somewhere to hang out with Danelle.
We took the blue trail (LaBarque Hills Trail) since it is shorter. Due to the mud, it was quite difficult to get through some places, but we didn’t mind the challenge.
The hike was great and the views perfect. Its pretty amazing how different this landscape is, being less than an hour from St. Louis! It was even better getting to spend a quite morning with the woman that I love.
