We went for a family drive today. It was a really nice day, but it was a bit warmer than it has been--glad we weren't doing in hiking or anything. Wouldn't want to actually break a sweat! :) So for those of you who don't live around here and wonder what Arkansas looks like, I took these pictures for you. (It was a bit hazy, but you can get a general idea). These were taken at the top of Petit Jean Mountain, which is located in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. Only about a 30 minute drive from our house. We also went to Mt. Nebo which is a little farther northwest, and it's quite a bit steeper than Petit Jean. Now to people who have seen the Rocky Mountains, these really only qualify as hills, but for us, they will do. It really is refreshing to get out and drive in the country. I can't wait to go back when the leaves are actually changing. Driving through the Ozarks during the fall is beautiful. Hoping we get a chance to go back soon.
