A professional writer for more than two decades, Beth has lived in nearly a dozen states – from Missouri and Virginia to Connecticut and Vermont – and Toronto, Canada. In addition to traveling extensively in the U.S. and the U.K., she has a BA in Journalism from Point Park University (PA), a MA in Holocaust & Genocide Studies from Stockton University (NJ), and a Master of Professional Writing from Chatham University (PA). A writer and editor for Only In Your State since 2016, Beth grew up in and currently lives outside of Pittsburgh and when she’s not writing or hanging out with her bunnies, budgies, and chinchilla, she and her daughter are out chasing waterfalls.
Nature always seems to find a way to surprise us, especially when we’re hiking. We might run across a sleeping fawn, pass a tiny waterfall, or even catch an unexpectedly brilliant sunrise or sunset. Natural surprises await just about everywhere you turn on this scenic hike in Missouri that’s picture-perfect no matter what time of the year you hike it.
