Close Encounter

My cousin and I went on a two-hour Wildlife Tram Tour at Dogwood Canyon during our trip to Missouri. This beautiful park is 10,000 acres across the Missouri-Arkansas border in the Ozark Mountains. We drove by and made stops at towering bluffs and waterfalls, old bridges, Glory Hole (a blue-green pool where some of the area’s largest trout live). We also stopped to admire American bison, elk, white tail deer and Texas longhorn roaming freely about and we went across the Arkansas border. It was the CLOSEST I had ever come to those types of animals — in the past I was in a car or at a zoo. It was a great experience. I loved the way the momma bison interacted with her babies.
