Arkansas part 2

Well, tomorrow turned out to be further away then I thought! But back to Arkansas--as I said, it is one of the most beautiful states in the nation:

And, unlike some other states, the place isn't overrun with tourists.
The bad? It's hot in the summer, the woods are full of ticks, and there is a certain obdurate hillbilly mentality there at times that makes my teeth grind in frustration(but, to be fair--there are plenty of states in the Midwest and South that share that particular trait).
All in all, it's a great place to go if you want to get away for a few days. I'm going back...soon.


  1. I really love Arkansas. I come up about once a year (from Texas) along with my horse to camp and ride at the Buffalo National River. I've ridden a lot of trails in the U.S., including the Rockies, and there is NOWHERE prettier or with better trails.

  2. I love the Buffalo National River! I also liked riding in Rocky Mountain National Park in CO.

  3. I lived near the Arkansas border in Missouri and again in Oklahoma. I made several trips to and through the state. It is amazingly beautiful.

  4. It is stunningly beautiful, and relatively undiscovered.
