Castle Ruins

This is another photo from 
Ha Ha Tonka State Park.
Ha Ha Tonka is a 
Native American Indian name
meaning "laughing waters."
While the castle ruins are fascinating,
the geology of the region 
is even more interesting.
Between where I stood to take this photo 
and the castle ruins off on the far cliff,
there is a deep ravine.
At the bottom of the ravine 
is the spring I posted
a photo of yesterday. 
At one time, 
the area where the ravine is now
was a massive cave system.
Sometime, before people came along here,
the cave roof collapsed, 
leaving a large sink hole.
It's a beautiful area and worth a visit
if traveling through Missouri.
