This is an area in St. Charles County, Missouri, overlooking the Missouri River. In the Fall and Winter, you will usually find a pack of Basset Hounds in the area practicing their tracking skills. This little girl is on her way to help with the hounds.
I spend Fall Sunday afternoons with a group called Three Creek Bassets, following the hounds though overgrown creek beds, around fields and along old roads. The setting afternoon sun in the countryside make it an enjoyable activity. This photo was taken with a Coolpix S9700 and processed in Lightroom.
