Our World: Arkansas Vacation

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them.)
This is my post for the Our World meme.  This meme is a second generation of My World Tuesday created by Klaus Peter and is hosted by five wonderful ladies.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

Last week Betsy and I were in Arkansas.  We try to go there about this time each year.  We have a favorite cabin on the top of Mt. Nebo which we think of as ‘our’ cabin.  The views from the cabin, especially the sunsets, are spectacular this time of the year.

If you know anything about us, you know that it is hard for us to travel anywhere without looking for waterfalls to visit.  This trip was no different.  We drove from our home to Arkadelphia in southwestern Arkansas, where we spent the night.  We then visited three waterfalls — Panther Bluff, Cossatot, and Shady Lake Cascade — before heading north to Mt. Nebo State Park.

Although we spent most of our time at Mt. Nebo, we did take day trips to Mount Magazine State Park and Petit Jean State Park.  We did some hiking in both parks, especially Petit Jean, where we hiked to visit beautiful Cedar Falls.

We had a wonderful visit in Arkansas, as we always do.  We had some concerns about the severe weather back here in Tennessee, as we heard of tornadoes near Crossville.  We also had some interesting moments heading home as we kept hearing tornado warnings along our route on Friday.  But fortunately we made it safe and sound and found everything in order at home, except for flashing digital clocks because the electricity had gone off.

Pictures will follow.

    I would not mind visiting Mr. Nebo…sure liked Betsy’s pictures from there.

    I’ve just been from Betsy’s and i didn’t see the waterfalls either. It seems that it is Betsy who always post more photos, including both of you in uniform!

  13. Rajesh Says:

    This surely sounds exciting trip with waterfalls and sunsets.

    nice to hear you both are safe. it’s a scary sight what we see on the news, how sad for people to lose family and their homes.

    i envy you for having a “go-to” spot when you want to get away and that cabin sure fits that for you. i haven’t been to the same exact spot twice in a row, would like to have an old reliable someday.
