    Missouri Hang 3 - Hawn State Park - Trip Report!

    The group met at Hawn State Park to hike the Whispering Pines trail, commonly regarded as the most beautiful trail in Missouri. We had 7 hikers on Saturday (plus a couple more on Friday night). We hiked a couple miles to the campsite, seeing some awesome scenery along the way, and got our rigs hung. The weather was great, sunny with a high in the 50's and a low around 35.
    Some of us slept great, some of us did not Apparently there were some animal issues durring the night.

    Everyone got some more miles in on the way back the next morning. Great hang! We'll have another scheduled soon!

    Post those pics!
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    Would love to be there for the next. Only hour and a half out, and man those trails were a pleasure to hike. This time I'll be on time to hike with the group!

    can't wait to hear about the animal issues. Nice pics

    We definitely missed you Brown!

    Thanks Disco for your efforts; if your Sunday was anything like the rest of us, you had a good day of solo time! Don't blame you for wanting to spend the extra time with the family...especially knowing what the temperature was

    Enjoy the day!

    Had a great time Friday night with Chewy and Digitizer, and it was fun meeting Hairbear at the trailhead. Temp only got down to 37, and Digitizer picked a great hang spot that protected us from the wind.

    Dig, I checked out your YT channel; extensive! Just found a way to spend several hours

    I just want to say what a great time I had meeting everyone for the first time and a big thanks to CB4(Disco) for planning the trip. I am already looking forward to our next group hang. I learned a lot from all of you. Some I will use for the rest of my hammock hanging years and some I may never get a chance to try (Catching an Armadillo).

    Here are some of the pictures I gathered once I got my camera out.





    Thanks everyone for the great Hang
