The One Place In Missouri That Looks Like Something From Middle Earth

Middle Earth served as the primary setting for the fantastical story, “Lord of The Rings,” written by J. R. R. Tolkien. However, you don’t have to be a hobbit to live out that fantasy of Middle Earth, because Missouri has its own Middle Earth and that’s Mark Twain National Forest.

Ready to start your hobbit adventure? Even if you’re not a huge fan of “Lord of The Rings,” you have to admit, Mark Twain National Forest is pretty darn cool. As I said earlier, this forest is pretty expansive so just giving you one of the area’s addresses wouldn’t do it justice.
