We took advantage of some days with reasonable weather in January and went hiking in Busiek State Forest and Wildlife Area. Busiek is just 20-minutes from Springfield, so for us, it’s a great place for a quick day hike. That said, we’ve been coming here so often recently we’re starting to think we need to be going a little further afield for a change of scenery.
Here are the pictures from a couple of hikes of the Busiek Silver Trail.

I fail at this picture every time. This hill is 1:4 and 1:3 in places. I never get a picture that makes it look steep
