Explore Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park in Reynolds County, Missouri. Shut-Ins is a term that physically describes parts of the East Fork Black River where the width of the river is limited by erosion-resistant hard rock—a unique topography that is eons old. The park there provides spectacular vistas and hiking opportunities. Jeff Ayers provides an explanation of this unique land formation.
