Posts Tagged ‘Mina Sauk’

Taum Sauk mountain boasts the highest elevation in the state, at 1,772 ft above sea level. I’ve always felt like this fact is a little over-rated, though. The plaque at the top of the mountain is on a concrete trail, surrounded by dense woods. It isn’t much of a view from up there. The real majesty of the mountain is when the water runs off the creek, down to Mina Sauk Falls, which is the tallest waterfall in Missouri without any cascades.

I didn’t get any pictures of the tallest waterfall, because light was not on my side. I had much better luck toward the bottom of the falls. Try as I might, I got to the falls well after the golden hour of sunrise. Clearly, the Nikon Nikkor 18mm f/3.5 lens was the hero of my day.
