Head for Higher Ground… PAD #1081

Head for Higher Ground... PAD #1081

Today I flew from Providence to Atlanta and then on to Tulsa, OK. Then I drove 2 hours to Joplin, MO. I thought I was headed to Joplin, KS (I don’t think there is a Joplin, KS, though). Tomorrow I demo in Parson, KS so I think that is what threw me off. You should have heard my mom when I told her I was in Missouri. The whole state is not under water.

On my way to Joplin I stopped in Catoosa, OK to go and have lunch at Mojo’s BBQ. To my dismay Mojo’s is closed. One of the best BBQ places I have ever been to along historic Route 66 is now closed. It was disappointing.

Then I made a stop over to the Blue Whale park. It still looks the same. I took a few photos for the next photo challenge, the April Challenge. the theme is Entropy. Unless someone repairs this then it will certainly be completely lost in a few years.


Then I drove to Joplin. I saw a Harley Shop one exit before the one I was supposed to get off so I hit the hotel first and went back to pick up my pins. I collect Harley Pins from every place I have traveled.

Harley Shop, Joplin, Missouri

While I was there I asked the woman working there of a place that would be nice to go to take photos. She told me about a waterfall that was down the road. She also said that she thought the road was pretty clear and no longer flooded. But man, the water was up pretty high.

I drove over the bridge and then down the road a ways there were a bunch of cars pulled over and many people at the waterfall.


I didn’t realize it was such a major spot, but apparently people take their wedding pictures here as well as their senior photos. There was some interesting rock in the area as well.

So I walked around a bit and took some photos, then it was off to get some dinner. I popped over to Buffalo Wild Wings and had some tasty wings. An early morning tomorrow and a drive over to Parsons, KS. Yes, I am sure it is Kansas this time.

  1. Sounds like you know where you are now. Too bad about the Rt 66 BBQ. Memere says you should have a life jacket in the car, you know her. i saw Grandma Theresa and she really enjoyed Eva. Stay safe.

  2. The scary thing is that I believe she said that. I will stay safe. I’ll try and find a different BBQ place tonight.

  3. Great photos, looks so pretty. I finally caught up at your flickr too and saw all your zoo shots, I’m impressed. 🙂

  4. Thanks Chica, so far I have 3 sets of zoo photos from Capron Park zoo. I loe going there as often as possible. The waterfall was pretty. I couldn’t find the best vantage point to my liking though.
