I Love the Ozarks - Next Installment
This is a great shot I found of Black River, a wonderful stream that flows through southeast Missouri and northwestern Arkansas. This shot was taken by someone in the Missouri portion of the stream, where the water runs a bit clearer.
Black River ran near my late aunt and uncle's horse ranch near Annapolis, Missouri. I swam in it as a child, and boy was it cold! Once the stream gets to Arkansas, it leaves the Ozarks and runs through flatter ground, picking up some silt and gaining a murkier appearance. But it's still a lovely river, although it can get out of control.
