The waterfall is just more exciting plus it is so easy to "attain" the highpoint. I've been to the top of other Missouri Peaks like Bell Mountain, Wildcat Mountain, Buford Mountain, etc. and the actual high point of some of those is tough to pin down. Taum Sauk is pretty obvious. Too bad Buford is not the high point since it looks much bigger from Highway 21.
I stood atop of that boulder last night, in the complete dark and took a picture of my feet
This was an easy "hike"
too bad I couldn't have taken pictures in the day time
they'll be up soon!
