Mount Nebo: Waterfall Photos December 2011

By

I had a cool visit to Mt. Nebo State Park with my son and his girlfriend a few weeks ago. I posted here the cell phone video I took of the waterfall. (When flowing, it is located on the Gum Springs Trail, just a little bit below the rim level at the mountain’s south end.)

Here are some photos I took of the waterfall.

The Dogwood Overlook Trail is at the Dam Site Lake Park on Beaver Lake, close to Eureka Springs in northwest Arkansas. The hiking trail is only two miles long, but it is a steep two miles and a little more difficult than the length would indicate.We headed out with the dogs today to check it out.

It was a perfect spring day, with blue skies and just a few clouds here and there. Because it was such a short hike, I opted to go without my backpack, thinking we would not be out very long.

The trailhead is at the overlook by Beaver Dam. There is a long flight of stairs going straight up. Buster was headed up the stairs full steam while Katie was resistant to climbing any of the stairs.

Autumn is a great time of year for hiking. The temperatures are much more pleasant than in the summer, and nature puts on a great show of color.

Here are some fall photos I took in late October at the North Rim Trail at Mount Magazine State Park.

Lake Leatherwood Dam Spillway Video              

By

Back in October, I went with my son and his girlfriend to Lake Leatherwood near Eureka Springs, Arkansas. We walked the Beacham Trail, the trail that makes a loop around the lake.

The coolest part of the hike is probably walking across the 1940’s-era limestone dam.This is some cell phone video I took of the spillway water flowing down the back side of the dam.
