Just figured Id share some of my pics of your beautiful state. Ive been there several times and have loved it immensely. I particularly love the Ozarks and the Branson area. My brother/friends and I also spend time on your lovely glades doing some scorpion/tarantula/snake/etc hunting, and we've been very spoiled. I do have some critter pics posted, but also some landscape images. If youre squeamish about arachnids and serpents, please look no further. Anyways, enjoy!

In the heart of MO:


Small lizard:


Male collared lizard:


Juvenile tarantula found near Gainesville, MO:


Ultra-cool false trapdoor spider, found in the Caney Mountain


Beautiful yellow crab spider:


The perfect brown recluse:

Cool little hopper:


Another lizard:


Argiope spider (orb weavers):

Sweet pix!!! You might like the St. Francis Mountain area of Southeast Missouri also. It has areas of Cambrian and Pre-Cambrian geology. If you haven't already check out Rock Pile Mountain/Lee's Bluff CA; Silver Mines and Elephant Rock.

Keep posting those pix!!!

Something I forgot...you may want to grab one of these and toss it in your truck. I did and am slowing marking off each spot as I go. If you do get a copy make sure to look up pink rock.

It has several sections;
Overlooks and Bluffs
Streams & Springs
Cave & Caverns
Just Special Places

There are a couple of glades in the last section along with places like Pickle Springs, Devil's Tollgate and Mastadon. It tells you a little about each along with directions.

Hmmm, I did NOT know that MO had taratulas running about. I guess if we camp when (if) we get to visit, I will surely be checking my sleeping bag!! Spiders worry me, moreso than snakes

Edited to add: Awesome photography though, and thanks for sharing
