The Osage Native American ghostly wedding ceremony that is sometimes heard and occasionally seen, in the Bridal Cave of Thunder Mountain Park in Camdenton; the large, black, feline Ozark Howler, the glowing eyes of which may cause the death of those it looks upon; the flying, fire-breathing dragon that was seen from a steamboat in the 1850s; the bigfoot seen in Hillsboro (could it have been MoMo?); MoMo, the hairy, sasquatch-like Missouri Monster, that is believed to prey on the dogs of the town of Louisiana; the gold mine in the Ozarks, eighteen miles south west of the town of Galena, which is guarded by the skeletal ghosts of seven Spanish miners; the pteradactyl of Altamont; the almost innumerable traditions, magical spells and superstitions of the Ozarks, some of which are recorded in Harold Bell Wright's novel The Shepherd of the Hills and in the John Wayne movie of the same name (though a rather different plot); and the ghost of a young boy in Sauer Castle, Kansas City, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Missouri.

The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. Visit Camelopard.com again, if not to travel then for another useful travel tip.
