Today was perfect weather.
Our friends invited us on an outing.
We met at Castlewood State Park.
There are several trails, so we went for one of the "blue" trail that starts near the park office.
Steve had a good sweat while hiking.
After hiking, we drove further into the park to a picnic area.
Tea and snacks after our little hike.
Part of the Meramec River passes through the park. The water is low now, but damage along the shore is still visible from flooding earlier in the year.
Skipping stones in the river.
We had a fun time!
