Changes since last visit.

Montgomery City, MO

We spent a relaxing Sunday.    We attended the small United Methodist church about a mile down the road.   When I say small, I mean small.

There were 16 of us in attendance.   The people were so glad to have us as visitors.   How cool was it that there was fresh made coffee all ready for the sipping.   

Then it was back to Lazy Day Campground.    I just love their ladies room decor.

By mid morning, all weekend campers immediately surrounding us had left.

We sat outside watching the hummingbirds landing in the trees and flitting down to quickly drink up the nectar from our feeder.

After lunch we drove about 3 miles to Grahams Cave State Park.

My daughter Amy, who is an archaeologist, tells me Grahams Cave is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the country, although all work was stopped in it during the 1960's.

Back in the early 80's when I was coming to Montgomery City on business, I remember going to see the cave.   The park has really changed since that time.  It now has many pavilions and picnic areas.  There is also a campground that is mostly without hookups although a few have electric.    I don't remember there being a campground at that time.   

There are paved and gravel paths leading to the cave and waterfall.  I don't remember seeing a waterfall either.

The cave still looks to me like nothing more than a rock overhang but I am assured it is an actual cave.  The entrance, as it was in the 80's, is blocked off with fencing.  However, there was a family of fox laying on the rocks.  I took pictures but they were so far back, they do not show.

In the evening we walked over the social hall at the campground for cake, ice cream and toppings provided by the campground.  Just bring your own bowl and spoon!

Love the bathroom decor!!

The size of the church doesn't matter as long as you feel at home..."where two or three are gathered in My name"... And coffee is always a bonus!!

Sure looks like a nice campground you're at. Sounds like those Methodist congregations really know how to make folks feel welcome!

Glad you spent a nice day, and the Church has a warmth about it. Your visit to the park looked enjoyable too.
