Weldon Springs - again!

It seems that we are drawn again and again to Weldon Springs. This was my 3rd time there, once in the heat of summer, again in the fall with Eric, and yesterday with John. The 5 mile hike "makes you feel like you've done something" (quoting Eric), and is always enjoyable. The view of the Missouri River is spectacular. Very different in each of the seasons. It seems like the kind of thing you could to do again and again, and it would always be new. We also determined that this must be the place where Meriwether Lewis fell down a cliff and almost died on the 2nd day of the expedition - my gosh, those bluffs just drop off! (You see how John won't go to the edge of the rock he is standing on - I was petrified that Jubilee would run over and that would be the end of her.)
