The Shut-Ins

It started out quite a bit chilly this morning.  My indoor/outdoor thermometer isn't reading the outside sensor but I have the weather channel on my laptop and found the weather for Black, MO which is real close by.  That reading was 38 degrees this morning but I think here in the valley it was a bit lower than that.  When daylight started the ground and low grass were all white with frost.  Once the sun popped up over the trees to our east it warmed up quickly and this afternoon was a beautiful time to visit the shut-ins and near 70 degree temps.

First here are a couple of pictures around our campsite.

This sign describes the flood that destroyed this park in 2005 caused by a rupture in the man made reservoir on the top of Mt Proffit.
This boulder is the one beside the sign and the following picture is other boulders strewn across the valley floor.
Then we take the path to the shut-ins

The swimming hole at the end is usually deeper but the stream flow is low.
