Centaur Chute

This is a pic of a causeway across the Centaur Chute that serves as the entrance to Howell Island in Chesterfield, MO. The causeway has been partly washed away by the water running over it when the river gets high. The chute runs about two thirds the way around the island with the Missouri River being on the opposite side of this view point.

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.

My husband took these on his phone. I think they turned out beautifully!

I’ve been in a bit of a slump until recently. Should have some new photos of my own to post soon.
