Grand gulf MO state park

This is a trip me and @miss.kinseymarie took to see Grand Gulf. It was a cave system that collapsed and now is just a big valley with rocks and cliffs eveywhere.
20170815_134202.jpg The first thing to see is the sink hole. Its looks like its 200 feet deep but I forgot to read the sign. At the bottom is a cave where the excess water from the rain goes and ends up at mammoth springs Arkansas. 20170815_133821.jpg

Here are some more pictures of the collapsed cave system. 20170815_135639.jpg

One of the other amazing things about yhis place is the natural bridge. You can't see it from underneath but you can walk across it. This is looking across the cave system. The sink hole is behind me. 20170815_142131.jpg
More video of the cave

After a 1/8 mile hike down 119 steps you get to the beginning of the cave. That's still kind of a cave. It has water flowing though it but its too small to go though. Lots of moss growing and for some reason alot of caterpillars.

I have still yet to visit this. Awesome pics, bro.

Tanks!

You need to. In the fall though

Very cool!

Thank you. You need to take the boys. Its a hour 45 minutes

This place is awesome! I haven't been since I was a kid, so I would love to take the girls soon. Awesome pictures and videos!!! :)

Wait till fall yo. bugs and leafs suck

Oh, I'm fully aware ;) Fall and winter are the best times to hike. But I can't help myself in the other seasons. Worth it to see the awesomeness! I go out and explore a lot, as you know, and I come home sunburnt, riddled with bug bites and covered in a poison ivy rash most of the time. Still.. worth it!

Awesome!!! We must take our kids there soon!

Wait for fall yo
