Went to Meramec Caverns and Meramec State Park in Missouri this past weekend with my son. The guided tour of the Caverns didn’t allow for near enough time to take pictures in certain areas, but it sure was pretty. Enjoying a splendid day with my son, I quickly caved to his request to go on the Meramec River boat tour just across the lot from the caverns entrance. Blessed further in being the only two passengers it allowed the Captain freedom of giving my son a turn at the helm. Talk about elated. (I was not allowed to post any pictures of that. You know. That teen thing.) The park followed.
