Red Tape - Partying = caBREWing

Ha! I laughed out loud when I read this section. When I lived in MO, we referred to this practice as "CaBREWing" (mixing canoes with beer). Ah, the bad old days...

Thanks so much for bringing a page for the Ozarks to SummitPost. This under-appreciated area was certainly due for more representation on SP.

Re: Red Tape - Partying = caBREWing

Love the term -- do you get credit for "cabrewing" ?

Ha, no, I cannot take credit for "cabrewing." ;)

The Springs!


The SPRINGS in the Ozarks made quite an impression on me. Big Spring, Blue Spring, Cave Spring...so many. And they featured bright blue waters or even the frosty blue water with high mineral content typically seen in glacier melt. Just amazing.

Might want to attach Bob Smith's Grand Gulf page: http://www.summitpost.org/canyon/542605/the-grand-gulf.html

Very nice page!

Seems as a great place to go hiking in. Love dogwoods.

Ah memories

I spent two years in the Ozark region (Ft. Leonard Wood) and had a chance to explore the area a bit. Yes, dogwoods in the spring had to be my favorite trees but the colors of the fall were also stunning. I don't miss the chiggers, ticks, copperheads, watermoccasins and that kind of stuff but it is a very beautiful area and worthy of a SP page. Thank you.

Re: Ah memories


I remember floating down the Big Piney hearing what sounded to my untrained ears like pretty heavy artillery practice. It added quite the air of excitement ot the canoe trip!

Great Additon

When I lived in Colorado, the Rockies were the only mountains I had ever seen. So, my first trip through the Ozarks was an eye-opener. It's a whole different "feel" there and I love all the lush forests. This is a great addition to SP.

Good page.

At last, one of my mountain pages is a child of an area page. Hope to get an area page created for the neighboring Ouachita's
