Chevy Truck

Friday was winery day. We visited the Defiance-Augusta area in Eastern Missouri having lunch at Chandler Hill in Defiance and then visiting Mount Pleasant in Augusta.

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.
