Hi everyone.. Well we are back from Vacation in Missouri and I am so glad to be home.. I am tired, Sunburned and just happy to have my bed. We did a 17 hour float trip the first day down the North Fork River which was on a Thursday and we only passed 2 people on the whole trip! No one was out because they all show up on the weekends. We stayed at Sunburst Ranch http://www.sunburstranchcanoe.com/ which was wonderful and if you get the chance to go you should. We Also drove right down the road about 4 or 5 miles and did some fishing and playing in the river at Dawt Mill http://www.dawtmill.com/ We have been going back to these places for about 6 years and Don was raised at Dawt Mill in the summer time as a kid in Missouri. They are just beautiful and peaceful. I do have some pics to put up but I have not down loaded them yet. Promise I will get to that in the next couple of days. We didn't go to Hudges Mill http://www.hodgsonmill.com/ this year which I hate because its so pretty with the Mill right up front with a wonderful little pond in front. Looks like something out of a painting .. There is also Hammonds Mill http://www.ozarkcounty.net/mills.html if you go to this link right on the front page you will see a list of all the mills and pictures.. they are all really close to each other , 10 miles or so..
We didn't go to Rockbridge Mill this year either, this is were they have the Rainbow Trout fishing!! which is out of this world... and we have always done, but you have to pay for the fish by the pound that you catch , so it can get pricey. All in all we had a wonderful time and I hope you take a look at all the links and see all the wonderful beauty that Missouri has to offer.. Pics up this weekend of your trip.
