Arkansas Ozark Trip Imminent!
Only one more day until we take off for the Arkansas Ozarks, where we'll be seeing images like the one above . . . though not quite so green this time of year.
I've borrowed this image from among the wonderful photographs offered by 'Daddio' over at the website dedicated to Exploring Izard County. This one shows a bluff from the first lookout point in the Sylamore Hills along the road from Melbourne to the White River on the way toward Mountain View.
As I've previously mentioned, I repeatedly cranked my bicycle along that road in the Sylamore Hills during the summer of my 19th year, when I was training myself for a several-hundred-mile bike trip from Tahlequah, Oklahoma to Waco, Texas.
I was certifiably crazy back then, and a little bit wild.
Since those days, I've settled down a lot, so I don't take physical risks, just intellectual ones, but I still love hiking, and I hope that the weather is fine this coming Sunday when we join Daddio, his family, and some friends for a hike though Ozark woodlands with many scenic spots even better than the one above.
I'll post again tomorrow morning before leaving, but after that, blogging will be light...
