A New View

A New View: Hiking

Assignment: Hiking The Location: Undisclosed Boone County The house that I grew up in had a heavily wooded and unexplored jungle just beyond my backyard where my neighborhood friends and I would spend most of the summer. Wandering through that forest, we would create forts, fish in the lake or forage for anything edible we […]

A New View: Dog-Friendly Dining

Assignment: Dog-Friendly Dining The Location: Logboat Brewing Co. I’ve always been a dog person. Throughout the years, I have met just about every breed of canine.

I spent summers of my youth hanging out in those woods and fishing that pond with buddies who lived in the neighborhood. That area seemed endless, but we all […]


A New View: Super Moon

Assignment: Super Moon The Location: Memorial Union on the Mizzou campus One of my first memories of seeing a gigantic, full moon was when I was 5 years old. I saw a red moon slowly rise behind my house on a fall evening. I didn’t know that the moon could be that big. I spent […]
