Day 1 Travel
Slight detour through Cerulean, KY. Cyan's sister's namesake.
Cerulean Springs, formed during the great earthquake of 1811 when the Mississippi River flowed backwards and created Reelfoot Lake.
Late afternoon arrival to Fredricktown, MO and Cobalt City. Cyan's brother's namesake. One of only 2 sites in North American where Cobalt was mined.

A fine day, pretty water, clear. A site i have been to before. Amidon Conservation Area.
Greeted by nesting Longears, a dozen nests scattered close in the sunlit shallows.
Active mounds populated by Bleeders, Striped and Ozarks.
Stonies grazing on the slick algae.
One of the Hornyhead Chubs tending to his mound.

Here is another shot showing the wide gravel and sporadic log jams of Indian Creek. Topside center you can barely make out my van parked in a nice grassy knoll overlooking the creek. The entrance was bracketed by a pair of tall pines marked with fading purple.
It was a beautiful site and offered a lot of aquatic life for our first day arriving early to the Meramec SP.
