Back in March, I was excited to be able to go see Cedar Falls at Petit Jean State Park (near Morrilton, Arkansas) when there was plenty of water flowing. I have only visited the falls a few times. This time by far had the most water.

Today, I was hiking the Rush Mountain Trail in the Buffalo River Lower District. The trail starts in the Rush historic area, about 20 miles south of Yellville.

It was a beautiful day to be outdoors. (Hopefully, I will get the trail review posted soon.)

This is County Road 79 or Erbie Campground Road, but it’s a gravel road and the road name isn’t well-marked. If you turn at the sign for Erbie Campground, it will take you there.
