On my way to Carthage, I started seeing signs for the George Washington Carver National Monument. Since the day was already spoken for with 2+ hours of driving, I figured what's another hour-and-a-half if I get to visit a park and see a place that I hear about fairly often.
It was a brisk day, but the sun was out, and actually not a bad day to walk a trail.
The trails are well maintained, the grounds are beautiful, and the history lessons on display in addition to George Washington Carver's outlook on life provide a minor respite from our current political climate.
I definitely recommend stopping by if you're in the area. The museum on the grounds has quite a bit of information on display and while I spent more time on the trail than I did in the museum you can definitely tell that a lot of care goes into this place.
