Kyle's Eagle Scout Project
St. Simon the Apostle
April 21, 2013


With funding from St. Simon Holy Name Society, Kyle replaced all the wood and hardware on 6 picnic tables under the church pavilion. Later in the fall he applied a sealer to the wood surfaces. Lowes agreed to sell Kyle the necessary supplies at their cost which was $342. There were 15 youth and adults who assisted with the project that day for a number of 41 hours. Kyle and his parents spent an additional 29 hours for a total of 70 project hours. Thanks to St. Simon Holy Name Society, Lowes, the scouts, leaders and parents who helped with the project and a special thanks to Mr. Strebler for being the project advisor, providing assistance and the necessary power tools.

Fort Leonard Wood Campout
Pulaski County
April 5-7, 2013

Stone Mill Spring rises in a pool typical of Ozark springs. Stone Mill is a second magnitude spring, the largest in the Big Piney watershed, having an average flow of 29 cubic feet per second. The spring water carries dissolved limestone which disperses the shorter (blue) wavelengths of light giving the water a blue tint.


Fort Leonard Wood (FLW) is an army training installation located in the Missouri Ozarks near St. Robert, covering approximately 63,000 acres, surrounded for the most part by Mark Twain National Forest.

For different reasons we got a late start leaving on Friday afternoon for FLW. After the 2+ hour drive we arrived at FLW near dusk. We followed the directions we were given from the main gate to the camping area. This brought us to a deserted field adjacent to the Big Piney River not unlike other primitive camp sites one would expect to find in the adjoining areas of Mark Twain National Forest. We set up camp here as the last glimmer of daylight faded. The boys built a small campfire. The night was clear and peaceful with a low temperature of about 48. Saturday was clear but windy with high temps in the 70s. (Click on “Read More” below to view more photos and text.)

Glassberg Conservation Area
Jefferson County
January 1, 2013

The New Year's Day Hike was held at the Myron and Sonya Glassberg Family Conservation Area in Northwest Jefferson County. This conservation area is new and has just recently become open to the public. The weather was cold with temperatures in the 20s and light snow on the ground, but typical for this time of year. We hiked about 2 miles from the trailhead at the parking lot to the bluff above the Meramec River and back. The trail gains about 250 feet of vertical elevation from the parking lot in the Labarque Creek valley to the ridge above the Meramec River. From the overlook we saw herds of deer in the fields across the river. Click on "Read More" below to view more photos of the hike.

9 scouts and 7 adults camped at Beaumont Reservation over the weekend of December 7-9. The weather was mostly cloudy, wet at times with temps in the 40s and 50s, but not too bad for this time of year. During our check-in, the camp ranger told us that there was a surplus of fire wood available and encouraged its use. Therefore a comfortable campfire burned throughout the weekend.
