When Betsy and I went to Arkansas earlier this month, we were shocked at the drought conditions in the state. As we traveled from Memphis to Little Rock we saw many brown fields and lawns. Even when we traveled north to Fairfield Bay, it was obvious that the state was very dry.
We left Fairfield Bay and headed toward Mountain View, Arkansas, along Highway 9. We passed over many dry creeks, but then we rounded a bend and saw the scene above.
It was so beautiful with the mountains, sky, clouds and green trees, that we both said “Stop!”. So we pulled over to the side of the road and got these pictures of this part of the Ozark Mountains. The Ozarks of Arkansas were definitely beautiful in spite of the drought.
