    Re: What would be the "Seven Wonders" of your State?

    I was going to start this with, "I wonder why anyone would visit Indiana", but decided to make a serious effort.

    1) Indiana Dunes
    2) Turkey Run State Park & Sugar Creek
    3) Hoosier National Forest (specifically, the Deam Wilderness)
    4) Caves- Indiana is a spelunker's paradise, although you'd never catch me doing it.
    5) Brown County's mountain biking trails
    6) Goose Pond FWA
    7) Um...I don't know, covered bridges?

    I'd add Daufuskie Island. Maybe the coolest place on the planet.

    Re: What would be the "Seven Wonders" of your State?

    I thought about listing seven places I've seen, like someone else, I think, did, and it became extremely tough.

    The Grand Canyon
    Yosemite
    Big Sur
    Sydney Harbour
    Gettysburg
    The Mall in DC
    Palm Beach, Sydney from the high road.

    And that's leaving out Carlsbad Caverns, which I really can't do.

    Yes. It's what made me start the topic.

    Natural Wonders
    1. Ozark National Scenic Riverway - including the magnificent Jacks Fork, Buffalo and Current Rivers. Karst caves, springs, whitewater, virgin forests and deep hollers. Incredible camping, canoeing, rafting, fishing and hunting.

    2. Johnson's Shut Ins - near Saint Louis. Open again after being devastated by the Taum Sauk Reservoir rupture and flood.

    3. Elephant Rocks - Gigantic tumbled boulders look something like a mini badlands dropped into the Ozark forests.

    4. Grand Falls - On Shoal Creek in SW Missouri. Not so much for its waterfall which is magnificent, yet pales in comparison to other famous falls, but the whole natural beauty of the area.

    5. Mingo and Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuges - Wildlife and bird lovers: nearly every bird that flies north-south can be seen here, flocks in the sky darkening millions in spring. Eagles, waterfowl of every type. Never developed, untouched riparian habitats.

    6. Onondaga Cave - In a state of 5,500 caves this is the one that grabs visitors. Rivals Mammoth Cave in Kentucky.

    7. Mina Sauk Falls - Cascades down Taum Sauk Mountain, Missouri's highest point. Visit in the wet seasons of spring and late fall if you want to see it in its torrential glory. The Ozark Trail passes by and you can swim in the pool created by the falls and shower in its spray.

    Man made wonders:

    1. The Gateway Arch
    2. Jamesport - Amish community in NW Missouri
    3. Shepherd of the Hills Theater and Branson
    4. Route 66, the Main Street of America, now part of I44. 317 miles of yesteryear with various sites dedicated to the old roadway along the trip
    5. Katy Trail - like bicycling? Bike from Saint Louis to KC or vice versa, 225 miles through a number of small comunities and historic sites.
    6. Bonne Terre Mine - worlds largest underground lake, submerged when the mine was abandoned. Scuba diving Bonne Terre is one of National Geo's 100 greatest adventures.
    7. Herman - German immigrants settled and became vintners. The town has done great job of restoration and maintaining its Rhineland flavor. Plus 4 star restaurants and great wine, antique shoppes, museums and the feeling you've gone back in time 100 or so years. What's most impressive about the last is that it is the way the residents live, not some artifice to attract visitors.
    Loved Bellefontaine Cemetary (like being in Europe....dozens of obelisks and mausoleums and other unique sculptures and is the final resting place of some very unique individuals), the new Busch Stadium with the St. Louis skyline in the background, the St. Louis Art Museum, the Missouri History Museum, the St. Louis Union Station (the Three Sisters stained glass was spectacular), the dozens of old churches (everything in town made of brick or mortar by law since about 1860), and Forest Park (what's left of the old St. Louis World's Fair of 1904 [the Louisiana Purchase Exposition]).

    And, that's just St. Louis.
