Forest 44 at Dusk

THE OZARK MOUNTAINS mainly cover the southern part of the State of Missouri and the northern part of Arkansas, and are the only significant mountain range between the Rockies and Appalachians. The extreme northeastern corner of this range extends into Saint Louis County, where it is known as the Crescent Hills; these hills are the location of the Forest 44 Conservation Area, where I took these photos two weeks ago.  These photos were taken over a period of more than two hours, from just before sunset until nightfall.
