Contact me for Trail Map [email protected] Various pictures through the seasons (beginning in the fall to the previous summer-most pictures are dated in lower right) at Ritter Springs Park north of Springfield Missouri. It is a park in the Springfield-Greene County Park District roughly 1 1/2 mile upstream from Fantastic Caverns. It is a hidden jewel in the Aux Arcs with a variety of easy to navigate trails that follow a creek formed by the spring itself which begins approximately 1 mile NE of the park on private property roughly 3/4 mile due north of I-44 and Kansas Expressway (in valley north of Ritter School along the I-44 Frontage Road). There is a very remote hard to find hidden tributary on the NE corner of the pond near the back of the park which hides a secluded small spring also (pictures of which are in video). The pond is dammed up and empties into the easy to wade Little Sac River. There are 3 known caves in the park of which really only 1 is open to be easily navigatble by the public. It is high on the bluff overlooking the LIttle Sac about 100 yards due NW of the dam on the west side of the creek. Follow the trail as it winds up the ridge. email me at [email protected] I'd love to meet you at the park and give you a tour and show you where the other two caves are located and some of the remote glades on the hilltop at the back of the park off-trail (pictures of cactuses in the glades are included in video) Enjoy our Aux Arcs!

Pictures from Doling Park featuring Giboney Cave in Springfield Missouri. Doling was at once a thriving theme park featuring a water slide, carnival rides and a skating rink. It is part of the Springfield Greene County Park District. The easiest way to locate the Park is to take Kansas Expressway north to Talmage (which is halfway between Kearney and I-44 at the Kansas Expwy Church of Christ) turn east and Talmadge will dead end at the park which will be on your left. The cave and trail around the top of the cave are awe inspiring. The Park District has also constructed a small walking trail through the woods on the north side of the lake. It is rumoured the Park may be expanding some day into the old quarry area (which is on private property on the NW side of the park currently). If you can find the trail to the quarry (which is still in the park itself-don't go on private property) go to the top of that hill and look for a long downhill slide to your left into the valley below. My daughter and I had a blast sliding down that and trying to get back up many years ago!

Pictures from Valley Water Mill Park and Sanders Spring (it's origination). Film is brief and begins and ends with a perfect picture from April of 2009 of Sanders Spring itself from the west side viewing area, There are other pictures of the spring itself in the video when it was in flood stage also. The park is part of the Springfield Greene County Park District located on the northside of Springfield. Easiest way to locate is to follow US 65 north past I-44 to the very first exit. Turn left and follow the road past the Springfield Greens Apta and Country Club. Road will wind to your right and downhill. Park will be on your left. It is a fabulously easy to navigate past as there is a walking trail completely circular around the lake formed by the spring on the north and dammed on the south. Trail is approximately 45 minutes to an hour to walk. Many viewing areas have been constructed. Particularly look for a small glade on the south side and then the viewing area for the spring itself is awe-inspiring. The west side of the lake trail is a little steep but not difficult in anyway. Small wildlife trails abound and are easy to explore also. Enjoy the park.

July 27th in Springfield , Missouri we got a good rain. But yet, it was not so good. It killed my gourd plants(well, at least alot of them. ) It left black areas that seemed to have soaked into the leaves. I took pictures a few hours after the rain, and took some more pictures today. I also posted a video from july 19th of the gourds. I don't know for sure what was in the rain, but it came from the south I believe and some of the leaves have what looks like watery oil on the deteriating areas. This just doesn't seem right at all. http://www.stellablueband.com

This video is about the Carroll Cave Expedition on 2-13-2016. I joined five team mates from OCDA (Ozark Cave Diving Alliance) and two team mates from the CCC (Carroll Cave Conservancy) on an expedition to the known end of Carroll Cave in MO. The end of the cave opens up into a large room that houses an underground lake. There was very little known information about the body of water. How big is it, how deep is it, where does the water go…Our trip was intended as an initial survey to answer many of these questions. We discovered that the lake is over 40ft deep and the water exits the lake in an underground passage. It is hoped that we could return to the lake with scuba gear and explore the underwater passage more. This is a video of our expedition and the conditions we face.

This is a great tour took about 45mins or so once we entered into the cave. (From Wikipedia) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantastic_Caverns Fantastic Caverns is a show cave located in Springfield, Missouri. Fantastic Caverns is the only cave in North America to offer a completely ride-through tour, which lasts 55 minutes and is held in a Jeep-drawn tram. The trams drive along the path left behind by an ancient underground river. Tram occupants are encouraged to touch a particular section of low ceiling dead stalactites. The cavern was discovered by John Knox and his hunting dog in 1862. Knox did not want the cave to be exploited by the Union or Confederate governments as a possible source of saltpeter, so he kept the cave's existence quiet until 1867. Knox put an advertisement in the Springfield paper for someone to explore the cave, and it was first explored on February 14, 1867. On February 27, almost two weeks later, the Springfield Women's Athletic Club explored the cave. These twelve ladies are considered the first explorers of the cave, since they carved their names into the rock as graffiti and are mentioned in an article published in the Springfield Tri-Weekly Patriot newspaper. The cave was renamed "Fantastic Caverns" in the 1950s. Interior of Fantastic Caverns. Photo by Matt Howry. The caverns were used as a speakeasy during the Prohibition years and hosted music concerts during the 1950s and 1960s The shows were broadcast on KGBX radio in the 1970s. The temperature inside Fantastic Caverns is about 60 °F (15 °C) year-round. In the winter and fall, billboards advertise that the cave is a "warm 60 degrees," while in the summer and spring, billboards advertise the caverns to be a "cool 60 degrees." The cave hosts over 100,000 visitors a year. Fantastic Caverns is 6 miles from Jefferson Avenue 562-foot Footbridge and near Ritter Springs Park.

A visit to Fantastic Caverns located in Springfield, Missouri. By the end of the tour it was storming outside, be sure to watch until the end to see everyone get soaked lol. Thanks for watching!

Quick look at the sinkhole entrance, after it's stabilized. I've installed the 30" diameter entrance culvert, with heavy gauge, stainless hinged door. Culvert is sitting on the bedrock, secured with welded rebar and heavy gauge remesh, topped with 1/8" galvanized, with creek gravel placed on top of that. Next, I will pour a concrete slab around it, then fill it back to surface level with soil.

Watch as Daryl Johnson shows you some of the basics of Morel hunting. He shows you the difference between the two different varieties (Grays & Yellows), and offers some advice on how and where to find them. He also shows you what poison ivy looks like. It's a plant most people want to avoid while mushroom hunting. Caution: some people develop allergies that can make them very ill after eating morels. Also, Always confirm you have the right type of mushroom.

Two silent films combined on one reel of film, showing mainly a Southwest Missouri State Teachers College (later Missouri State University) football game c. 1940, with the Health and Recreation Building (later McDonald Arena) and Academic Hall (later Carrington Hall) in the background. This is followed by part of a 1923 film that includes a crowd of people (many of whom are probably students carrying books and heading away from the football field), a few cars driving by, the marching band, a football game (with Academic Hall and the Education Building (later Hill Hall) in the background), a bridge, a U.S. Fishery sign, footage of nature (mainly trees and bodies of water), the football team running out onto the field and a small part of a game, and a very brief shot of the beginning of a track race. Because these parts were shot at different speeds, the footage from c. 1940 appears in slow motion here, and the 1923 footage is somewhat variable and often appears sped up. The student newspaper mentions a few films made in 1923 by W. C. Grimes and A.P. Temple (Science Department Head, for whom Temple Hall is named), but describes other scenes not included here, such as "the journalism visitors from Columbia ..., the Patterson poultry farm ..., and Fulbright's pumping station," as well as "W. T. Carrington, former president of our institution," "basketball, and winter scenery." The nature footage may be "of the beautiful scenery in and around Springfield and in the White River country, including Phelps Grove, Doling and Sequiota parks, National cemetery, ... Branson, Hollister, Forsythe and Lake Taneycomo." This film may also be what is simply stated as "During the fall term another reel will be added to the film, featuring football."
