October in the Ozarks

October at the Lake of the Ozarks! Trees are starting to turn … leaves are beginning to fall … and there’s a bit of chill in the air.

Nice Hike at Rocky Top Trail 🙂

Had an early morning hike at the Rocky Top Trail near the Grand Glaize Beach in the Lake of the Ozarks. The hike starts off going through a meadow with plenty of sun … so bring a cap and a water bottle! You’ll also need pretty sturdy hiking shoes as it was a little rocky and slippery at some spots. Once you get past the halfway point, you’ll find a bluff where you can view the boat traffic over Lake Ozark – and there is a lot of traffic! Then it’s a pretty easy hike back to the parking lot. The total trip took about an hour and a half. It’s nice to see the boats from a different view point once in a while!

Then back to the water!

Once the hike was over, it was back to the water. While hiking is a fun diversion, there’s nothing better than cruising on the lake. If you’re looking for a fun cruise on the lake of the Ozarks (hike not necessary 🙂 – just give me a call or shoot me at email hello@captainjeffrey.com.

The 2020 Shootout at the Lake of the Ozarks – Day 2. We didn’t make it out for day 1 since the rain was pouring down most of the day. But Sunday, August 30, the sun was out and the boats were racing. We found a few places along the route to toss up the drone to get some overhead shots.

While I enjoyed the speed and the thrill of the boat racing, I prefer to take it easy when I’m at the helm. If you’re looking for a peaceful trip on the Lake of the Oarks this fall, just let me know!
