On the road in Arkansas

Well, we ran away from home July 24.......our 45th wedding anniversary was July 23.....we thought we deserved some time away.  ")   We literally just wandered around western Arkansas.....north to south.   It was so relaxing!  We were gone for five days and nights and are ready to go again!.......anywhere!   We loved the beautiful Oachita National Forest, Oachita Lake, and many of the national parks in this beautiful state.  We drove to the top of Magazine Mountain...highest in Arkansas....centrally located.  Lots of winding roads and fishing streams.  We even visited a CCC site that was well documented and had almost every foundation left from every building that had been there.....housed 200 men back in the 30's, 40's........but they tore it down in 1947 (really sad that they's really some interesting history for that state).  We visited many, many rock shops.....even found crystals lying around in some of the state parks (just tiny ones).  Met some very interesting people......which we love to do.  ")   It was a great trip for us and we returned very refreshed!  Also checked out some fishing sites with cabins that we may go back to visit very soon.
