Given today’s attitudes, can you even imagine a school holding a Barefoot Contest? Me neither.
But in the 1930s they held them.
Let me wrap up the trip that my son and I made out west. After leaving Great Basin National Park we headed straight home. We did make one short stop, though, at the Cahokia Mounds across the Mississippi from St. Louis.
I’ll have one more post about this trip where I reflect on trying to do the whole thing barefoot and not really succeeding.
Sunday and yesterday were two of the scheduled open houses at the Octagon of the Newark Earthworks. What that means is that the golf course on the site is closed and the folks of the Newark Earthworks Center put on tours for the public of the site. These are always interesting and fun—I always learn something new every time I go.
This was also a very interesting time, almost, to be there.
