Looking up the course from near Big Drop. The start of the race is down the hill from the pavilion.
For the trip we camped at Johnson Shut-Ins State Park. After spending the day at the races we played on the rocks at shut-ins.
The old campground at Johnson Shut-Ins was destroyed when 1.3 billion gallons of water from the Taum Sauk Reservoir came rushing down. The scour path is amazing.
Below you can see the rebuilt reservoir.
