    I was in Birch Tree for a couple of nights this summer. Stayed at the motel behind the gas station.

    It's not much of a town.

    Hey 1Track here is a "Spring" preview.
    This is Round Spring near Eminence Mo. as it comes from under ground.
    Makes me thirsty just looking at it! Deep blue and ice cold even in July.
    Bring your good camera you will need it.

    Thanks for the view Chris, Alley Spring is the only one we've seen in Missouri so far.
    I will bring a good camera for this one.

    Hope to see you there!

    Bring your polarizing filter too. If used properly it can greatly enhance photos which include water.

    Oh, and bring your tripod if you have one. You can then use very slow shutter speeds to blur the water flow for a different effect.

    Site #45 reserved for me and my brother, @gnsrfn. I'm trading a rent payment for a mortgage payment this year which may mean this is my only big ride this year. Can't wait! :ricky

    As fun as that sounds, we're planning to load the bikes in the truck and bring the camper this time.

    I've got an empty bed in one of the duplex cabins. PM me if you need a bed.

    I've seen people drag they're canoe up to the pool and run down the rocks. Pretty hilarious.
