Schoolhouse Falls

After getting a burger at the Ozark Cafe in Jasper, we drove back up to explore the Buffalo River again.  We drove down miles of dirt roads, eventually passing by this old barn near Erbie.


On the way home, we decided to try to squeeze in a few more waterfalls before it got dark. Luckily there are several waterfalls in the Ozarks. We ended up going to Schoolhouse Falls, which is one that I've been to before. But on the last visit, there wasn't any water in the falls. The falls are about thirty feet tall.


There were a lot of irises in bloom at the base of the falls...


It is a short hike to the falls and back. But the hike does involve trekking up a hill, which was just about the limit of what my legs could handle (after hiking into Indian Creek that morning). But it was a good way to end a great day out in the Ozarks.
