These are just a few of the pictures we took on the Caddo Bend Trail at Lake Ouachita (pronounced wash-i-taw, in case you're curious) State Park. It is absolutely gorgeous here and I can't wait until it cools off enough for us to go camping this fall! The best part is it only takes about 20 minutes to get there!
I can't remember if I've shared these ones with you guys before or not, so if I have I apologize. This is from a short hike the 3 of us did on West Mountain in Hot Springs National Park. Don't tell my husband I posted a picture of him. It will be our little secret. ;)
These pictures are some random ones from different trails/areas we've stopped at on Hot Springs and North Mountain in Hot Springs National Park on our ranger led hikes. The top left is from the North Mountain overlook, top right is a view from Goat Rock, and the bottom is obviously my daughter in her super nifty carrier from Kelty! If you do a lot of hiking, backpack carriers really are a must have lifesaver. :)
Last, but certainly not least, are a few pictures from our ranger led Sunset Trail hike in the national park. The entire thing is AT LEAST 9 miles long, so, since we have a time limit on the ranger hikes, it goes without saying that we did NOT do the entire thing! lol Which is quite alright with me because the portion we did was enough of a workout for me. The top left is a view from Balance Rock, top right is the mountain we started on (doesn't seem that far, but we went AROUND, not down and up), and the bottom is another view from Balance Rock.
