Example text

When archaeologists heard that the husband of Graham's great-granddaughter was bulldozing in the cave to enlarge it for his livestock, they persuaded him to stop and conducted excavations from 1949 through 1955. Their findings were astonishinga ten-thousand-year record of almost continuous human habitation in the cave. This was the oldest material and the best-preserved deposits found until that time. Because of the site's significance, portions have been left intact for future excavations. Directions: From Danville, on I-70, take Highway TT west, which dead-ends at the park in two miles.

02 mi. [2]. Pass a frightful honey locust tree on your right and continue through a thicket of cedars and brush. 35 mi. [3]. Soon you'll descend to a flat bottomland of the Little Bonne Femme Creek, where the massive trunks of cottonwoods and sycamores erupt from the carpet of lush floodplain plants. 55 mi. [4]. 61 mi. [5], nestled in a limestone outcrop on your right. 80 mi. [6]. Jack-in-the-pulpits, as well as ginger, bloodroot, and wild geranium, adorn the rich slope on your right. 97 mi. [7] and turn right.

This is a tulip tree, an Appalachian hardwood that grew so big that pioneers hollowed out single logs to make long, lightweight canoes. Just after passing the tulip tree, you'll see Big Sugar Creek on your left. Contrasted with the muddy and silty streams typical of north Missouri, Big Sugar Creek runs crystal clear over gravel and exposed limestone bedrock. Begin ascending the bluff over the river. Large dolomite boulders on the left complete the Ozark-like scene and invite you to climb them. As you turn away from the creek you enter an open forest crisscrossed with ravines and dominated by giant white oaks, sugar maples, and shagbark hickories.
