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…

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…

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….

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…

Well, Whiskey Chute….

May 2, 2016 After the big rainstorms this past weekend and knowing it could be one of the last waterfall excursions we could take this year, I really wanted to go see Whiskey Chute in all it’s glory.  Tim Ernst’s picture in the book is breathtaking and I wanted to see this for myself!  The…

Cabin Falls to Maidenhair Falls

April 15, 2016 Today we decided to tackle another spot that got us the first time.  There is a trail to 9 waterfalls literally right off of Hwy 7 about 15 miles North of Dover.  You park on the side of the highway past Mack’s Pines where the power lines cut through the National Forest….

All Over Jasper

April 16, 2016 I am writing this blog a tad bit late….on April 11th Pops and I embarked on another journey, this time about 30 miles past where we usually roam.  I drove this time to give Pops a break.  While looking down at the map he started to get carsick.  Our plan was to…

North Fork Illinois Bayou and Native American Falls

March 22, 2016 Today the pops and I decided to take more of a driving tour, so we thought.  We’ve been wanting to see the North Fork and South Fork Falls along North Fork Road, just North of Dover.  Once we reach Scottsville it is a scenic drive up 164N which eventually turns into Granny Gap 1…
