Information about the North Fork of the White River and River of Life Farm; the river, floats, wildlife, history, surrounding country, and the people. I am a lifetime friend of "River of Life Farm" using my Canon cameras.

Cardinal Flower (Lobelia Cardinalis)
Blooms along the North Fork (some years profusely) and is a startling color of red. Attracts hummingbirds all fall until they migrate south. Shown on top, is the rarer Blue Lobelia, also on the North Fork River.
I have spent 45+ years of my life "with wet tennis shoes" around on or near Missouri streams. I am fascinated by the wildlife, love catch and release fly-fishing, canoeing, bird-watching, studying natural flowers and trees. My favorite river is the North Fork of the White and my favorite location is River of Life Farm near of Dora, Missouri. I use Canon DSLR Pro grade cameras and a series of Canon L series lenses.
