Hiking the Rim Trail

Scenes from the Rim Trail on Mount Nebo, Arkansas. March 10, 2009.

This post is a good indication of how far behind I am in getting my pictures organized.  One of these days …

As many of you know Betsy and I were at Mount Nebo, Arkansas a couple of weeks ago.  This is one of our favorite places to visit, and we’ve been there six times since we got married.  Last month I hiked one of my favorite trails on Mount Nebo, the Rim Trail.  The Rim Trail is a 3.5 mile trail that circles the mountain just below the top.  The trail offers some magnificent views of the mountains and the Arkansas River Valley.

But these pictures are from the hike I made in 2009.  The skies were better this year, but I don’t know when I’ll get this year’s pictures organized.  If I’m lucky it will be before we go back in 2011!

Betsy and I went to Hendersonville on Friday to help out my folks.  We found them to be in good spirits, but they are obviously getting more frail.  But I am grateful for each  opportunity to see them and to give them a helping hand.

    I’m guessing from these images that the trail has many beautiful views. I can see why you keep going back.
    I’ve been taking photos pretty constantly for two years George and I have no organization – truthfully, I have none. 🙂
    I’ll keep your Mom and Dad in my prayers.
