We camped at Red Bluff, along the spring-fed Huzzah Creek. The creek was amazingly clear, and had wide stone expanses along it's banks, where we found tiny shells, lots of geodes, and a variety of interesting stones.
Swimming kept us cool, and provided for a really fun afternoon at camp. The area is named for Red Bluff, which is in the photo below.
Working on perfecting our smore technique.
Catching bugs for the "bug apartment." We had a caterpillar (named Sapling), a lady bug, and lightning bugs as tenants.
Fishing at sunset along Huzzah Creek.
The next morning, we took an early morning hike through the forest and along the bluffs. We saw a wide variety of mushrooms in the woods, some of which were neon orange.
Back at camp for breakfast and coffee.
The water in Huzzah Creek was so clear that we could see the fish swimming around, but we still didn't catch any. They swam around our feet while swimming, and we could watch them circle our lures while fishing. There is one at the mid-left of the above photo.
Temperatures in the mid-90s didn't bother us while in the water.
Driving back through the Ozarks, we found this amazing little burger stand in a small town. In addition to really tasty milkshakes, they had veggie burgers! Yay!

It was a great summer weekend- marked by amazing food, great drinks, time spent with family, and time spent outdoors. A few photos sum it up nicely- margaritas, farmers market veggies, a magical little door discovered while biking the neighborhood, good local beer, and a Sunday KC-style veggie cookout. Happy summer!

Fishing and making the perfect smores.
