St. Charles Farm

This is one of the many duck clubs along the Mississippi river. Missouri offers one of the best sites in the nation for duck hunting and St. Charles County is no exception. During the fall huge flocks of ducks fill the skies and fill the wetlands during feeding time. Walking the levies during these timesContinue reading “St. Charles Farm”

Chapel Path

A foggy morning at Chaumette Winery. Happy New Year! My wife and I stayed at one of Chaumette’s Villas for New Year’s Eve and an ice storm that night brought heavy fog in the morning.

This iconic scene is in the middle of St. Louis’Continue reading “Snowfall in Forest Park”

Country Road

A fall scene in Weldon Spring, Missouri. This area sits on bluffs above the Missouri River, just west of St. Louis County. The area provides space for equestrians and roving “foot pack” hunters with their Basset Hounds. Following the hounds through the woods and pastures can be a great way to spend a fall afternoon.
