  • I just happened to visit the guys at the park a couple of weeks ago, and they were very friendly and proud of their little unknown piece of paradise. No mention of the fact that the river used to flow southwest through the Bootheel before a "breech" occurred at Thebes, the remnants of which are the rocks.
