This short drive between towns is typical rural southern Missouri. It is less hilly and forested than other parts of southern Mo. We drove it in route to a canoe outfitter. Pleasant but not extraordinary. We left Noel, after canoeing, and traveled due east to Cassville, in route to Roaring river state park. That stretch of road was gorgeous.
