CONFEDERATE RIDGE

Yesterday we took a roadtrip to beautiful Doniphan, Mo.  Nearing town from the east I noticed a new road sign near USFS complex, "Confederate Ridge"...a reminder of the many Civil War skirmishes fought there.  There's a small cemetery near the cabin site in the picture with two Confederate graves...I doubt the soldiers considered it a skirmish?  Bordering Arkansas, Ripley County oozes history, from the Civil War, Trail of Tears and the Old Military Road, including beautiful Current River, the timber logging era and more.  It's worth the drive, especially for those sensitive to the vibrations.  Treat yourself to a dose of pioneer determination, Mars warrior energy, Cherokee survival/spirit and for those so inclined, you might pickup on the area's Atlantean colony Sun Temple vibes.  Have fun.
