I finally got another chance to hit the road and headed for a state park that’s been on my radar for some time because it looked like something both guys and the gals would enjoy. I was right. Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View was amazing. I loved it for several reasons, but mostly because it’s an effort to continue the Ozark traditions of craftsmanship and because every crafter there was so friendly and knowledgeable about their chosen craft. And each was helpful with an explanation of what they do. The park’s mission is to perpetuate, present and promote the Ozark way of life, and they do it well.
