Travel Theme: Pathways

When I went on a hike I had the theme of pathways on my mind.  I took this hike at Castlewood State Park in Missouri.  It is a nice day use area, but if you are planning a visit, I would recommend you bring bug spray.  This hike was about 3 miles and featured quite a bit of elevation considering that it was in Missouri.  Here is part of the path; it looked like several paths in a lot of spots:

ISO 100 50mm 0ev f/5.6 1/20

ISO 100 50mm 0ev f/5.6 1/20

If you did not look closely, you could lose the trail with markers like these:

ISO 100 50mm 0ev f/5.6 1/60

ISO 100 50mm 0ev f/5.6 1/60

Parts of the are were not very friendly looking:

ISO 640 50mm 0ev f/5.6 1/125

ISO 640 50mm 0ev f/5.6 1/125

And there was this little guy, making his own path:

ISO 640 50mm 0ev f/5.6 1/3200

ISO 640 50mm 0ev f/5.6 1/3200

Cheers!

  1. I’ve only been out to Castlewood one time. It’s a long way for me to ride to take a hike. I do remember a lot of hills overlooking the Meramec. You are right that parts do not look very friendly.

  2. I do love the theme of paths…I would suggest that the rest of the world would describe your park as relatively flat, but I have not gotten out enough this year and for me just the 3 miles would have been a lot, even without a good still hill.
