|Missouri's Highest Natural Point - Taum Sauk Mountain
Taum Sauk Mountain, the Missouri High Point, is located in the St. Francois Mountains in southeast Missouri.
The high point is located in Taum Sauk Mountain State Park. From the main parking lot,
a short hike of 0.3 miles on a paved sidewalk leads to the summit.
There it is, the highest point in Missouri. It was a beautiful late October 2010 day.
I stood there and thought about the masses of people in Kansas City and St. Louis,
my redneck friends in rural southern Missouri and places like Joplin, Jefferson City and Hannibal. At this spot, I stood above all over them! :)
