Maramec Spring Park, Missouri







"Maramec Spring Park", Missouri,  I very cool park to have a great hike. Lots of amazing sights to see. Have you ever been to a fish hatchery? Such a learning experience. Very cool to see up close.

(quoted:) "In the early days Maramec iron was used for kettles, plows and other utensils that could be hauled in wagons. Eventually products such as bar and pig iron were floated down the Meramec and Gasconade Rivers to Pittsburgh and Cincinnati." (for more history of this park, "click here".)

 It was very cool to have the chance to see so much history all in one little park, all in walking distance. It's amazing to see how our country use to be so "old school", men worked & used their hands to build, invent, fabricate, or manufacture items. Makes you think. Beth ( :
