MO 96 at Hwy. 39, Albatross, MO
If you needed to pull off the road for a bit of a rest in the old days
there was, and still is, a neat little roadside park in Albatross. It
is on the NW corner where the Mother Road meets MO 39. Today we hop in
our car in Springfield and zip right past so many reminders of what traveling
was like all those decades ago, this is one of those places. It's easy
to imagine Dad pulling in here and Mom setting up a picnic lunch for the
Small rest/picnic areas like this are a sort of endangered species.
This one was still accessable when we last went by, but you have to
turn north on MO 39 to get to the entrance.
