“Missouri‚Äôs only National Forest, Mark Twain, encompasses roughly 1.5 million acres, mostly within the Ozark Highlands. The Forest is characterized by large permanent springs, caves, rocky barren glades, old volcanic mountains and nationally-recognized streams. It has a wide variety of trails covering 742 miles.

Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
