Ozark - St. Francis National Forest and Camp Ozone.


It was an overcast day for our drive through the Ozark-St. Francis National Forest. I don't think the weather had been cool enough to allow for the tree's leaves to change colors. We couldn't really see much anyway, because the clouds in the mountains were at ground level.

We did find a very nice, and historical place for a hike at the Ozone Recreation Area.

This area was once called Camp Halsey, also known as Camp Ozone. It was part of the Civil Conservation Corps.

The buildings are no longer present, but some of the foundations still remain, along with a path, and several storyboards to inform visitors of this place's history.
