I am fortunate to be able to claim that I've tubed the Huzzah Creek and the Meramec River in Crawford County, MO near Steelville. It's something I read about doing and I sure was looking forward to doing it someday. Little did I know, it would happen so soon.
My friends decided at the last minute to do concessions at the Crawford County Fair and so my opportunity arose out of the blue. I didn't take my camera that day (the pics below are from Bass and The Rafting Co.), but I'll tell you what, I've got memories firmly implanted in my mind I'll never forget.
It was gorgeous, serene and so much all-around fun, I highly recommend it. I know I'll be doing it again. Next time, I'm going to visit Huzzah's sister creek, the Courtois, which is pronounced Court-Away, while Huzzah is pronounced Who-Zall.
There's lots of river and rafting companies and resorts to choose from. We went through Bass and I have a cute pink t-shirt to prove it. ツ
Oh, and the drive home down I-44 was sublime. I enjoyed the heck out of it. Just gorgeous and happy to be home.
