Our first stop at the top of Coy Bald looking over toward Lower Pilot Knob (the tallest of the hills in the distance). The knob is also in the the Wilderness area, which gives some idea of its size.
A hike organised by the Missouri Department of Conservation and Springfield Nature Center. The hike started with frost on the ground and temps of 24F, by the time we finished the temps had staggered into the forties, but Long creek was still frozen in places.
