Greers Ferry, Arkansas
The weather was very interesting leaving Missouri driving to Arkansas. The skies went back and forth from heavy storm clouds to blue skies. Once again, we missed the worst of it. Our route was diagonally SW for 4 hours.
Shiloh COE Campground on Greer's Ferry Lake. 30a, $17, site# E14 across from the lake.
After settling in and watching the sunset we stayed inside as it was too hot for a campfire.
Mostly we drove around the lake, through the small towns and back roads checking the area out. I happened to see something on the news about a free Subway sandwich on Tuesday. So we enjoyed a yummy Cali Chicken Avocado sandwich. Thanks Subway!
The Natural Bridge of Arkansas. It was a pretty drive through more of the teeny tiny towns we have been driving through for weeks.
We just peeked into the cabin as another storm was imminent and we wanted to get to the bridge before any rain started. We'll check it out on the way back down.
They have a cabin filled with old kitchenware, tools and machines.
The trail is gravel with plenty of well taken care handrails and steps. Easy for most anyone.
This is as close to a hike as we have had in a long time on this trip. We sorely miss it.
Here it is visible from above. While it is very thick, you are not allowed to drive or walk on it.
On the way back down we went back in the cabin. This old bathtub looked pretty snug.
Underneath the cabin, downhill, is an old still.
I love the huge barbed wire fence.
Back towards the entrance cabin/gift shop were some interesting "rocks" from the area.
The weather was off and on windy and very stormy. We were half way out of Arkansas on our way to Oklahoma when we saw this up ahead. That's not a tornado I hope?
