First of all this is not truly ‘mine’. At least not in the sense that I ownit, but it is mine, because it is THERE.

For over 50 years, Alley Spring has held a special place in my heart and life.

A family excursion back when they still milled on occassion, as a state park, a favored destination for class trips, Senior Day, and yes, dating.

Now a part of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways, which several includes other ‘favorite spots ‘.

I am thankful for the work done  to protect and preserve this beautiful part of the country, and appreciate the breauty that abounds.
