Buffalo River Winter Activities
Last week we had a wonderfully warm couple of days to explore outside. Sunday, the 2nd, I hiked at Lost Valley with my husband and 11 year old daughter. We have taken this route many times, but never get tired of it. The temp was 60 degrees! And due to rain and melted snow the cave at the end of the trail was awesome. We got some great photos and had an even better time. The week before that we had snow on the ground. We drove to see the elk, but they have the good sense to stay in the woods and out of the falling snow. So after striking out at Boxley Valley, we headed to Steel Creek campground (which is just next door for us). There I got a really nice river and snow pic. The rest of the day was spent sledding down "the big hill". Very appropriately named I might add. We had a blast!
I have been monitoring the new additions at the mill pond in Boxley. There are now 3 trumpeter swans who are enjoying the Ozarks. I have faithfully traveled down the mountain to get a good shot of them. Finally, my persistence paid off.
Enough for now, but I will try to keep updates posted on hiking, canoeing and other outdoor adventures that await here at Steel Creek Cabins along the Buffalo National River.
