Link to the Monarch Levee Trail

June 22, 2017

Cyclists, we have a new link from the Katy Trail to the Monarch Levee (Chesterfield Valley). It allows you to ride from Creve Coeur Park and many other locations on the Katy all the way to Chesterfield Valley. It would be way cool for the Sprit Air Show. By using it you could avoid the traffic hassle of the air show. I watched the air show one year from the levee and saw 90 % of the show. Admittedly you cannot see some of the close to ground passes of the planes but there are not many and not in my opinion worth the traffic hassle.

 Below map and photos should give you an idea of where to catch the link. Also, in the post below this one is a link to a list of confirmed mountain lion sightings. Note the one in Chesterfield caught on camera:

 See red route below


Heading West on the Katy Trail


Sign on the Katy for the beginning of the link


The hill you climb to access the river crossing is easy to summit because it is a switchback.


This is the bike lane on the bridge you use to cross the river. This shot is looking backward after I crossed the bridge. Could not stop to take a picture on the way across the bridge because a huge MO Dot truck was on my tail.


After crossing the river, you will see this sign


Cougar Takes Down a Deer

June 21, 2017

 What amazes me is the speed of the kill. It is all over in seconds. There have been many confirmed sightings of mountain lions in Missouri and at least one of them on the Katy Trail which I ride occasionally. I have always heard they strike from behind which the video confirms. Although I would like to fight off the beast the quickness of the kill seems to rule it out. I guess being mountain lion food is just another way to exit this world.
