Mills, Flowers, and Parks

We packed up camp at Trail of Tears State Park and hit some parks on the way back home.

The four-story mill at Bollinger Mill State Historic Site was completed by Burford in 1867, the previous having been burned down by the Union army. The bridge used to sit on a toll road, and had its own toll booth until 1906.

Lydia is a lot less classy than many people think. She hangs out with guys that wear Walmart Spongebob wife beaters and ridiculous horseshoe mustaches.

A butterfly having a bad day.

A great spangled fritillary taking a break at Hawn State Park near Ste. Genevieve, MO. The park covers nearly 5k acres and geology buffs come to the park to see the number of exposed rock types. 

We've been laughing recently about how much rural Missouri likes to showcase ancient farm equipment.

Classed it up in my Walmart Spongebob tank top at Felix VallĂ© House State Historic Site in Ste. Genevieve, MO. The house is a Federal-style limestone structure built in 1818 by Jacob Phillipson, a merchant from Philadelphia.
