Marcel, Dad Help Create Part of Ozark Trail

In 2005, a massive reservoir collapse wiped out a section of the Ozark Trail and closed down Johnson Shutins, a popular Missouri state park. The rebuild of the park is almost complete.

W and M donated a Saturday to help with the re-routing of the trail, carving out their own little section of the 700 mile, work-in-progress Ozark trail. Weather was perfect and the event was well organized with over 180 participants. A large number of rocks were excised and trail smoothed.

"Throwing Knife"
