Pedestrian Crossing sign at Big Cedar Lodge near Branson, MO. This place is full of all sorts of fun things like this. Driving on the property is an experience itself with these signs, shallow water crossings, waterfalls, gardens and more! If you visit, be sure to take your camera!
This is one of the many waterfalls at Big Cedar Lodge and Dogwood Canyon. It seems that nothing can be built in these two areas without adding a waterfall. There are so many streams that run this resort that many just flow across the road.
I will be visiting Dogwood canyon this weekend so watch for more photos. In the meantime click here for more photos: Big Cedar Lodge and Dogwood Canyon.
The people who own Big Cedar Lodge have an overly scenic valley down the road from their resort near Branson. This place is loaded with waterfalls, scenic bridges, overlooks and even new mill that looks like an old one. This is a little stream running under some steps in the valley.
Next week I will be visiting again for some springtime photos. Be sure to look for lots of new photos.
One of Missouri’s most spectacular resorts is Big Cedar Lodge. This is an old 1920’s estate converted to a resort by the owner of Bass Pro Shop. The creativity of the owners is something to see. Here is a photo overlooking the Registration building towards Table Rock Lake. This early morning photo gives great lighting and the mist on the lake.
Basseting in Grubville, MO with 6 Couples (12 Basset Hounds). A local family loaned us their farm for the afternoon allowing us to hunt through the open fields, creeks and woods. The hounds spent two and a half hours in the fields before returning to the farmhouse for an early dinner before driving back to St. Louis.

How did I get this elephant to pose? It was easy, it was feeding time and one of the keepers, off to the side, motioned for the Elephant to pose for the food. Good timing.
This is at the St. Louis Zoo, one of Americas, top zoos in an area called Rivers Edge.
You do not need to go on an expensive safari to get great animal photos. These facilities work very hard to provide a natural environment for their animals making for a nice setting.
