In the heart of southeastern Missouri, nestled within the embrace of rolling hills and lush forests, lies dozens of hidden gems known to only a fortunate few. They are places where time seems to stand still, where the rhythm of life flows as gently as the clear spring waters that grace this enchanting landscape.
The clear spring waters of southeastern Missouri are a testament to nature's beauty. Deep within the Mark Twain National Forest, a network of pristine springs gushes forth, forming a web of crystal-clear streams and pools that meander through the woodlands.
Each spring carries its unique charm, from the mesmerizing whirlpools of Blue Spring to Pickle Springs National Natural Landmark to the tranquil serenity at Sam A Baker State Park with its crystal-clear waters.

One early morning, the 573 Motion Dog, a young cocker spaniel named Ciapka with a passion for adventure, ventured into the secluded paradise called Pickle Springs National Natural Landmark. She followed a narrow trail, the air alive with the song of birds and the sweet scent of wildflowers.

The path led her to a small clearing where she beheld the wonder of the Pickle Spring. Sunlight danced on the water's surface, creating a dazzling display of almost magical colors. And our motion dog couldn't resist the temptation to dip her paws into the cool, inviting water.
The following weekend, we headed out to Sam A Baker State Park. In the heart of southeastern Missouri near Patterson, Missouri, the clear spring waters are more than a source of refreshment; they are a source of wonder and awe.
Then we headed out to Sam A Baker State Park.
It is one of the most profound experiences you can find. The sound of the Crystal clear waters rushing by and the notable fact that the water has no smell make Sam A. Baker my favorite. One of many places in the 573, Sam A. Baker State Park is the simplest, most unassuming place, reminding us that the beauty of nature is a gift that should be cherished and protected for generations to come and indeed visited.
We tried to interview Ciapka, but she was too busy having fun. NO COMMENT!
