Hurricane Creek

After leaving Haw Creek, I met up with Zack and we decided to drive over to Hurricane Creek to try to see a few more fall colors. Hurricane Creek is another classic Ozark stream, flowing past huge boulders, deep pools and bluffs. The creek is protected by the 15,177 acre Hurricane Creek Wilderness Area, which prevents the land from forever being developed or tarnished.

The wilderness area can be accessed by the Ozark Highlands Trail and only a few maintained roads. The road we followed passed by an old homestead, which is all but gone. The only remnant that people once lived here is this lone, solitary chimney.


Eventually we made it to the creek, which did have some really nice fall color.





And one last shot from the creek, as it was starting to get dark:
