This year, Missouri has been vibrant with Autumn colors through the end of October and the first of November. We have enjoyed being outside so much in the last month! Our eyes have been assailed with colors at every turn.
We started our Autumn color hunting in the beginning of October with Elephant Rocks State Park and found that the foliage was just starting to turn.
Those color were good and ERSP is always a great road trip, but what was waiting at the end of October was even more fantastic!
The third weekend of October was rainy, but we had signed up for a guided hike with St Charles County Parks Department, so we hit the trails in the rain. We weren't sure how nice the colors were going to be int he rain, but we were SO surprised!
These colors at Klondike Park were pretty, but there was still so much green out there that we knew that it would get better. The first week of November was so busy that by the time Saturday rolled around, we needed to get outside for an escape. We were told that we should try out Matson Hill Park in Defiance, MO. We had not been there yet, so we decided to give it a try. HOLY COW! The park is for trails only (hikers and mountain bikes) and the COLORS were unbelievable! It was one of those time when we knew that this was the best medicine for our weekly blues.
We appreciate you reading all of this and watching our videos. We are trying some new things with the vlogs. Please let us know what you think. Until next time, keep on trekking!
Kay and Matt enjoy hiking all over the USA. We have a YouTube Channel to video our adventures, this blog, and we are working on building an app to allow others to go on adventures too.
