Johnson’s Shut-ins State Park

The last stop on our adventure was Johnson’s Shut-ins State Park. During the summer the shut-ins on the Black River are open to swimming in for the public. There have been deaths from swimming in the dangerous rapids. They are beautiful, though.

Taum Sauk Mountain State Park

My spouse and I spent last Saturday visiting three Missouri state parks. It was a mini adventure and we had so much fun!

I took these pictures at the top of Taum Sauk Mountain, which is the highest point in Missouri!
