Winter in Devils Backbone Wildnerness by James Ware
Amber Spring flows clear and cold year-round.
Named by early settlers for a prominent ridge, the Devils Backbone
Wilderness Area is part of Mark Twain National Forest and is managed
by the U.S. Forest Service.
A tire found in Crooked Branch, a dry
creek bed this time of year. This is a one hour walk into the Devils
Backbone area. Just shows how far a tire can get all on its own with
a little help from water. Who knows how far it traveled from where
it was originally dumped? One thing for sure, no one carried it here
