Iron County, MO is the home of three state parks all in a row, Elephant Rock, Ft. Davidson SHS, and Taum Sauk Mountain State Park. The old Civil War Fort in Pilot Knob is the historic site that binds this valley together and walking up toward the old earthen redoubt fort with binoculars in hand instead of a 52 caliber is a bit eerie. Elephant Rocks is just fun to walk around especially if you get off trail and climb over some of the 1 billion 500 million year old granite formations, cool. You also have to drive up to Taum Sauk State Park and visit the overlook, this is the highest point in Missouri and the view is awesome. Great morning of birding mixed with a little sightseeing and some rock climbing........... how much fun can a couple of guys have on a Saturday morning.
