The most fascinating thing I
found at Robbers Cave was the exposed root system.
It makes sense; Going down to bedrock is kind of hard because bedrock is higher
than the ground is in many places. The exposed roots get polished by the elements
and the visible shapes are strong testimony to the courage life must have to survive.
Many of the pine trees were growing right out of the rock, having bit in and inch by
inch chewed out a place to grow.
Shortleaf pine does predominate in this region, but just for a splash of color, Heavenly Father did sprinkle in hickory, white oak, and various other oaks, and dogwood trees to delight our eyes. Nettle is, unfortunately, rather common also and if you don't see it before you run into it you could be entangled in a cloth-ripping experience most of us would prefer to avoid.
Hunting inside the park is a No-No, but you can fish for those delicious black and white crappie, trout, perch, bass, catfish, and bluegill sunfish in the nearby lakes Carlton, Wayne Wallace & Coon Creek, where you will find 189 Lake Surface Acres, all told.
