Arcadia Valley is part of the Ozarks and an easy drive from St. Louis. I went to a picnic there today and saw a few things of interest.

The area consists of clear, rocky streams, small towns, wooded, rocky hillsides, and flat lands at the base of the hillsides which are used for cattle and hay. A good deal of habitat is still in tact and preserved by various government organizations.

One of the many streams in the area.

ohhh-hoooo I hope you were using the telephoto lens and the family in the culvert weren't really that close to you. . .

The skunks around here do not seem to spray people, but will spray loose dogs... or at least I haven't been sprayed yet =) People around here say bathing in tomato juice gets rid of the smell.

The skunks photo is the best. Too blasted cute with those little eyeballs peering out. I don't find they spray us much either but dogs that go after them will definitely get it.
