Harvest Festival at Shaw Nature Reserve

We decided to go out to the Harvest Festival at Shaw Nature Reserve last weekend and enjoy the lovely Missouri Fall weather. Shaw Nature Reserve is owned by the same people that run Shaw's Garden down in Tower Grove Park.

The weather was absolutely stellar. The festival had about 15 local StL eating establishments serving their goods as well as 5 bluegrass bands and the always refreshing Schlaffly Beer. A fantastic farmer's market was also there.

The girls were able to go for pony rides and enjoy a petting zoo. They had a Native American Teepee as well as a pioneer mud brick house for the girls to go through.

The trails at the park are also fantastic. With Reese along, we were not able to hike as much as we would have liked. Oh well, more chances for me to drink my favorite heffeweizen.
