Back on February 28, after we had a nice little snowfall in western Arkansas, I headed over to Haw Creek Falls (Ozark National Forest, northeast Johnson County) to get some winter pictures.

As you might expect, the waterfall was beautiful that morning with the freshly fallen snow and a number of icicles. The temps were in the mid-20’s.

Since the campground was closed for the winter, I had to park outside the gate. The only real downside to this was that I had to make a wet crossing across the low-water bridge near the entrance of the campground. (I came prepared though and had an extra pair of tennis shoes in the car. Boots might have been good though.)

I was surprised, especially given the snowy condition of the highways in the forest, to see someone else (photographer Kurt Jones) arrive about 15 minutes after I did. (Check out one of the pics Kurt took here.)
