One Woman’s Love Letter to The Ozarks

Over the last two years, I have truly fallen in love with the Ozarks. Over the last (almost) two years we’ve really started to embrace this area that covers Southwest Missouri and Northwest Arkansas. It’s come to be a legitimate favorite area of the U.S. of mine. For our anniversary, Matt and I spent a weekend in Arkansas, and we had a realization that that was our last Ozarks adventure, just the two of us, that we’ll probably take for a few years. It actually made us a bit sad. That feeling has inspired this letter from me to The Ozarks.

A Love Letter to the Ozarks

Dear Ozarks,

It was with a slightly heavy heart that Matt and I moved here. We loved our life in Asheville and while we always thought of our move back “home” (well, my hometown) as temporary, it was hard to leave a place we loved so much. I wanted to be close to my family, be here to prepare for our upcoming wedding and also live somewhere with a lower cost-of-living so we could save for our big trip. You let us do all of those things, but what I didn’t expect was that you would give me so much more.

A Love Letter to the Ozarks

You gave me memories from trips to last a lifetime. Thank you for your often overlooked but outstanding beauty. I will never forget these last two years of explorations. Although I took you for granted for over 25 years of my life, you sat patiently waiting for me to explore your rivers, mountains and hollers. You became my respite from fernweh and a place where my relationship with Matt grew and was nurtured. You let me know that there was a place I could feel at home in the Ozarks if I took the time to find it.

 

You’ve been the destination of many trips, long and short. I’ve hiked hundreds of miles of your trails with my closest friends, new friends, my family and my husband. Waterfalls, lakes, mountains, rivers – you shared them all. You helped me achieve goals on these trails. You showed me that beauty is found in unexpected and underrated places. Along with all kinds of natural beauty, I got to explore the beauty of old towns as well. I visited museums, learned about history of the people who came here before me and had more than a few locally brewed pints with good people from all over the region.

Thank you for making me feel small looking up bluff faces or over cliff edges. Thank you for making me feel strong after finishing a challenging hike. And thank you for reminding me just what my priorities are in life: family + friends, adventures, the environment and feeling secure in myself + my choices.

The last thing I want to thank you for the is keeping me inspired. You taught me to master the art of weekend wanderings. You showed me wonder in big ways, you kept me writing frequently + practicing new photography skills. Even when I was mentally exhausted or going through tough times, all it took was a walk outside or catching a sunrise or sunset from a scenic spot and all was well in my mind again. You gave me focus during one of the most life-changing periods of my 27 years of existence.

With Love, Always, Paige

Thanks for reading this love letter to The Ozarks. Since Matt + I moved here in Sept. of 2015 we’ve gone from being engaged, to being married. We’ve hiked hundreds of miles together, mostly in the Ozarks, but also beyond. We settled into a routine that allowed us to save enough money to escape for a year abroad. I’m beyond grateful to the people + places we encountered in The Ozarks over the last two years. We love you all.

All of the photos from my love letter to The Ozarks were taken by my amazingly talented husband. You can find more of his work on his website.

    Some places make you fall hopelessly in love with them at first sight while with others it happens gradually. Ozark looks so beautiful and pristine, it is no ‘wunder’, it has you enthralled. We too look at places as more than just that. We feel places have a heart too and hence have a relationship with them like people.

I haven’t spent nearly as much time as you in the Ozarks, but I do love the mountains near me in New York State. There’s just something about being outside hiking, feeling small with the towering rock all around that clears your mind and fills your heart.

    I’ve got to say, few blog posts inspire me to pause and consider writing my own letter to a place I love. Thank you for this. With more gratitude like this, the world would be a much better place. Keep traveling!

    Truly a beautiful place. I haven’t been, but your photos make me want to. Clearly it is a very meaningful place for you, and you helped us all to feel that, too.

    Very sweet letter. I actually feel sad now lol lilike Ozarks is a person. But if Ozarks was a person it would be deeply touched and moved my your letter and anxiously awaiting your return. Your pictures are gorgeous so I think I’ll have to meet the Ozarks too 😉

      Thank you, Christopher. It’s really interesting you said that because my parents actually took this letter very personally, like I was saying goodbye to them. I think if you visit the Ozarks, you’ll love it!

    I’ve heard great things about Ozarks, and it looks beautiful! Sometimes moving back home can give you a new appreciation for the place – like seeing it through the eyes of a visitor & enjoying it to the max instead of being bored of somewhere that has always been there.

    I greatly admire the way you have introduced Ozarks to us. Looks like it is a place worth visiting. Of course I have hardly scratched the surface of that huge country called USA 🙂 (In terms of travel, that is)

      It definitely is massive! I’ve visited all 50 states, and still haven’t scratched the surface because even each state is so big! It’s a lot to explore.

    Sounds like the Ozarks have been a big part of your puzzle. You definitely get all the feels when major life changes like getting engaged and then married happen in a place. That place will always be special and evoke memories from some of the happiest moments of your life.

      It definitely has been a huge part of my life. It definitely will. I have an even stronger bond with the Ozarks having been here with Matt. Thanks for your sweet comment.

    Such a beautifully written letter! I moved away from home too with a really heavy heart and I always wish I could be closer to home. But sometimes the place you move to gives you so much more to hold onto and memories your cant forget. I am glad you are settling in happy! 🙂

    This is one place I truly had no idea it existed (and the netflix show helped too) Beautiful photos, it looks like one of the best places to hike! Thanks for sharing.

      Ozark is definitely bringing some knowledge. Can I just say that Ozarkians aren’t all heroine-dealing, thieving hillbillies! 😉 My husband and I were cracking up at all the stereotypes in is, but it is a PHENOMENAL show. Definitely come here if you’re a hiking-lover!
