Mammoth Spring, Arkansas

 On the drive home yesterday we stopped on the border of Arkansas and Missouri in the Ozarks at Mammoth Spring.  A beautiful walking path and visitor center surround the lake.

Mammoth Spring is Arkansas's largest spring and the second largest spring in the Ozark Mountains. A National Natural Landmark, the spring flows nine million gallons of water hourly. Forming a scenic 10-acre lake, it then flows south as the Spring River, a popular Ozark trout and float stream.

Looks like a good place to stop and take in the scenery. You weren't too far from my sister's home in Springfield Mo.

If you can also run through that area in the fall, you will be treated to some wonderful autumn color. A little east of there is a place called Glade Top Trail....probably the most scenic drive in the Ozarks during peak color.

Neat area, for sure!
