Beyond Castlewood - November 19, 2017
Hike from Taum Sauk to the Hwy N TH was the plan for Saturday but with the rain and wind forecast we opted for Sunday, colder but sunny. A little over four miles in the girl in the orange jacket trips on the rocky trail and breaks her arm. So much for our Sunday hike and she is not new at this having hiked the entire Ozark Trail and this section several times. Be careful and have fun!
