Mystery Trippers Discover Surprising
Treasures in Old Town, Florissant
Story and photos by Pat Lindsey
A year ago, I invited a group of friends to go on a monthly mystery trip with me. I explained that these would be local day trips to places that were entertaining, educational, and inexpensive, if possible, and an outstanding place for lunch would be essential to every trip. To my astonishment, I received 12 positive replies, so the mystery trip group was formed and a tentative calendar was sent to each member.
To date, we’ve had two Illinois trips, one day in St. Charles, one day in Hermann, MO, a trip to West County, and several trips to various parts of St. Louis City. As I ran my daily errands around Florissant, it seemed only natural that one of our day trips should be the beautiful Valley of Flowers.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
