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.

Glade Top Trail
Considered one of the most scenic locations in Missouri, the Glade Top Trail cuts through the Mark Twain National Forest and borders the Hercules Glades Wilderness Area. The trail is a pleasant half-day activity for wildlife and nature enthusiasts. Glade Top Trail is renowned for its enchanting spring and fall landscapes. Annual celebrations of the dazzling fall foliage are held at the Caney Picnic Area along the trail, complete with traditional barbeques and music festivals. Each spring is celebrated with a flowering tour that showcases the dogwood, rosebud, serviceberry and wild fruit trees. The trail travels along ridge tops, providing spectacular views of the glades.
I have made 3 trips to the Glade Top Trail and have never been disappointed. It is like going to a different state for an hour.
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.
