QA, that was an interesting read of the history of the hills and mountains in those areas.

Thumbs up Gorgeous drives...

The Ozarks are much, much higher and steeper in that area, with some of the mountains getting up to around 2500' above sea level, and valleys which are 1000' or more deep. Very rugged country, and the highest bluffs anywhere in the Ozarks are on the Buffalo River in the area.
Absolutely gorgeous in the fall...

The Ozark Mountains that you've heard about were formed differently than many other mountain ranges...they were formed by erosion. So they don't stick up from the plateau, they are cut down into it. I'm mostly familiar with the Stone County/Taney County/Ozark County areas...and there are a number of scenic drives where you'll see landscapes easily equal to the photos in your San Antonio thread.

One of the most fun ways to see the scenery is to float by...Dawt Mill - enjoy some of the Ozarks finest fishing, canoeing, camping and lodging

I have done this many times, and it is beautiful. Also check out river of life farm, they do a trip from Hammond Camp to their place or Patrick bridge that is GORGOUS!
