Ozark Mountain Experience
These are articles written to show students at the University of Missouri - Rolla the advantages of their surroundings and give ideas fo outdoor recreation. The articles highlight various outdoor areas and activities in and near Missouri and focus on the sights, activities, history, and geology (if applicable) of the areas listed. All areas highlighted offer something interesting and unique. I have not been bored, as many people are, at UMR. There are plenty of things to do and sights to see. More articles will be added as time permits so check for updates once a month or so. Most articles highlight locations in the Ozarks but others concentrate on the border area closer to St. Louis. I am originally from that area and know more about it than other Ozark border regions. If anyone has a must see location in Missouri or nearby, please let me know.
The name of this website has changed from Missouri Outdoors to Conor Watkins' Ozark Mountain Experience to more reflect the topics and places discussed in these articles. The old articles at Missouri Outdoors are gradually being transferred to this page as time permits. Improvements include a better appearance, pictures within the articles, maps, and revision of some older articles. For now, visit these articles at http://web.umr.edu/~cwatkin/mooutdoors.
The layout of this site is changing. Subdivided categories, a more condensed layout,
and pictorial thumbnails should make the site easier to navigate. The old layout simply
listed articles as they were written in chronological order and didn't organize them by
topic or region. I will provide a link to the old layout as an option if there is reader
