Sinkholes are way fun
We visited a very interesting city park today… and was given a personal tour!
If you live near or around St. Louis – visit the Website Greenspiraltour.com! That was how I found out about Urban Park Tours!
This amazing woman walked my family through the park (in the freezing rain) and helped us identify geological features, birds, and trees. We had so much fun exploring!
Since Missouri has underground streams and caves, sinkholes are actually quite common! I guess I never paid attention to the landscape to have ever noticed one!
From afar, the sinkholes look like an inverted hill.
Thank goodness for washing machines!
We found a small natural spring and could see where the water began to come out of the ground. We followed it a short way to where it seeped into the ground and became an underground stream.
Some trees we just called MONSTER TREES!
They did, however, want to pose with the metal statue of children.
Everyone’s clothes were filthy and wet…
Everyone was BEGGING to come back to this awesome amazing WILD park!
When we got home, the kids were given the open-ended assignment of creating a book about what they learned at the park.
This is their book – they did a great job 📖
