Goodbye Mar-a-Lardo

Oh what a happy day. The day I won't have to be embarrassed for America is at hand!

Let the crying begin.

I won a couple of bets when the election was called for Joe Biden so I had several reasons to be happy.

I put on my celebratory Merica shirt and I celebrated with some park time.

Some Missouri state parks have an embarrassment of riches and others can't seem to operate at all. The Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park visitor center was palatial.

"The Power of Water

On Dec. 14, 2005, this granite boulder was torn from its resting place high atop Proffit Mountain during the Ameren upper reservoir breach. Approximately 1.3 billion gallons of water carried this rock 1 1/2 miles, dropping it here. There was not a scratch on it."

This is one of the scariest signs I've ever seen.

Swimming here with your kids, with fast running water and plenty of rocks to slip on and bonk your head, seems like a great way to drown.

Hiked a lil hike. The term "shut-in" refers to a place where the river's breadth is limited by hard rock that is resistant to erosion.

This rock looked kind of like bacon. Delicious.

I was likin them lichens.

These fun wispy seed things were growing all over the place.

Enjoyed the fall views at the top of Taum Sauk Mountain State Park. The mountain is the highest point in Missouri at 1,772 feet.

I'm real excited about these weird elbow trees. Like how is this thing even still standing.

Did some gallant cannonball standing at Battle of Pilot Knob State Historic Site.

The site is cool because you can see the walls and trenches at the fort as well as a crater created when the magazine was detonated before the retreat.

All of the mail in ballot vote counting, and Trump's hurt hurt butt while it took place resulted in some fantastic Count von Count memes.
