It All Comes Back to You

it makes me glad to see YA books like this out there because I think they help the younger generations process things they might themselves be feeling or going through.

Camping at Echo Bluff State Park

Formerly Camp Zoe and located in Eminence, MO, the beautiful Echo Bluff State Park is a relatively new park with lots to offer by way of accommodations and things to do. Nestled in the Ozarks near several springs, the waters of the Current River flow through this park, providing multiple areas for swimming and fishing, and it is a great place to stay if you are planning a float trip! There are even sightings of wild horses that roam the area!
