(Stanton, MO) HI 92 Lo 73Meramec Caverns because it also had a zip-line. I decided that the zip-line was more than I felt like paying for soI decided to take the cavern tour even though I had been in the cavern in NM. I am glad I did cause this one was different and it had a small river going through and I liked that. I was said that the sheriff waited outside for Jesse James to come out. Eventually they went in after them and found that had escaped using the river. During the civil war the cave was used for extracting saltpeter for making gunpowder. In 1972 a portion of the cave was used for the filming of Tom Sawyer. I was able to find a spot under some trees to park the rv and I kept the generator on for a/c.
The two figures represent the gang and the rock behind them thats hard to see is Loot Rock.
This top photo shows a man loading his wagon and in the front were his horses.
