Katy Trail Day 3 - Franklin, MO Part 2

This entry was getting a little too picture-heavy, even for me. I've winnowed todays photos way down, but there are still a few more I couldn't stand to leave out.

The Katy trail has been almost continually lined by bluffs. Most of these are of a dark gray or brown stone, and they are wet-looked and covered in growth. The bluffs nearing Rocheport where different - soaring, sand-colored rock, exposed and warm-looking. Trumpet Creepers clung bravely to a few, attracting many hummingbirds. These are the kind of bluffs I looked forward to seeing, reminiscent of those along the St. Croix river.

An Osage Copperhead, the first venomous snake I've seen out of a terrarium.
