Just in case you think that all we Livesays do is watch basketball Annie told me that we should write about our day trip this past weekend up to Ha Ha Tonka State Park. Ha Ha Tonka is located on the Lake of the Ozarks and features the ruins of a turn of the 20th century castle built high atop the bluffs by a prominent Kansas City businessman.
The park also features natural bridges, sinkholes, a spring, caves and over 15 miles of beautiful hiking trails.
There were some pretty dramatic bluff views and an intricate boardwalk system on the bluffs that wound down to the water below.
We explored a small island that featured a balancing rock, rapids and a cave (Annie was very curious about the cave).
