The State of Missouri

Lake Allamon at Wallace State Park, Cameron, Missouri
Canadian Geese at Wallace State Park, Cameron, Missouri

Missouri Musings
Home of Mark Twain, Jesse James,
Harry S. Truman,
and the pony express.
Site of a national compromise
that did not prevent
the Civil War.
Wide rolling prairies dotted with
massive cylinders of hay.
Molded by two mighty rivers,
it launched thousands
migrating west
into the unknown frontier.
