Welcome to the Winners Circle, GeorgeS. Sure didn't take you long.

Your answer is off the mark, Moon Pie, but too close for me to publish your guess. Try again.

Is it Ozark National Scenic Riverways?

Sorry, mviewmtn; it's not Ozark National Scenic Riverways.

Moon Pie, you've named just about every park in the area except the correct one. I'm pretty sure that your next guess is going to be right on the mark.

Bingo, Moon Pie! You are welcome to enter the Winners Circle, but owing to the multiple wrong guesses that preceded your solution you will have to use the servants entrance.
