Ditchhiking From Cass to Oark

April 3, 2017 It’s been almost 3 months since my last post and I am so far behind I can’t even keep up.  I’m just going to start with the most recent and work my way backwards until my next adventure day.  Today we explored Mountain Fork Creek, High Bank Twin Falls and Cove Creek…

The Great Sphinx of Arkansas

January 4th, 2017 For Pop’s birthday he wanted to hike up to the Arkansas Sphinx on Hess Knob.  We have driven past it several times; our first visit we didn’t attempt the hike and our second visit was in the middle of Summer when the trail looked all snakey and chiggery.  This time we were…

Pelsor Adventures

November 5th, 2016 It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to hike and take in the fresh Arkansas Ozark air.  This time I left the Pops at home and took an old friend of mine from high school to some of the neat, easy to access parts of my favorite area in the state –…

Roadtrippin’ the Wild, Wild West

September 15th, 2016 The pops and I decided to take our hiking adventures out of state.  Like far, far out of state.  We planned a week long road tripping and hiking adventure through Utah and Colorado.  I’m just gonna break this down day by day so y’all can get a better understanding. Day One:  We…

From Paris, With Love

September 6, 2016 I am so behind on writing.  You know, life gets in the way.  But here it goes….my adventures on Mt. Magazine and throughout the state park.  But before I get into that, I gotta give you a little backstory…I recently designed a calendar showcasing my landscape photography across Arkansas during the last…

The Tourists of Blanchard Springs

July 27th, 2016 Today Pops and I played Arkansas recreational tourists.  We decided to do more of a driving tour to the Mountain View area to escape the heat we’ve experienced on the last few hikes.    We are also still “lickin’ our chigger wounds” from the snake infested, overgrown field from the last blog….

From Woolum To Nars (and Everything In Between)

July 22, 2016 Since it’s late July and the waterfall season is winding down, Pops wanted to go somewhere there was a constant supply of water to cool off from the horrible Arkansas summer heat.  Today we chose to explore the Woolum Ford Campground area on the Buffalo River.  We took Highway 65N from Conway…

The Waters of Wealthy Grounds – Richland Creek

June 22, 2016 I had an itchin’ for a waterfall so Pops and I made 2 attempts since last week to find some falls at Richland Creek.  Our first trek last week we stopped about a quarter of a mile shy of finding Richland Falls.  It was also over 100 degrees outside and we had a…

Buffalo Canoe Trippin’

6/6/2016 Today we did things a little differently.  Instead of hiking to waterfalls, we decided to canoe to them.  Last attempt at canoeing the Buffalo was an epic failure.  We didn’t reserve a canoe and thought we could show up on a Saturday around 11 and one would be available.  We were so wrong.  Every…

Indian Creek…Eeek!

May 19, 2016 Pops wanted to tackle Indian Creek today.  After reviewing it on AllTrails and seeing there were many falls and cascades, I was down for the hike.  Little did I know just how treacherous the trail really was.  We parked at Kyle’s Landing and followed the Ozark Highland Trail for a little way…
