Little Rock, Arkansas (August, 2011)

 
We left on a Sunday morning fairly early and headed down 65 through Harrison.  It is 4 lanes all the way to Harrison but south of there the highway sucks until you hit I-40 in Conway.  As we crossed the Buffalo River just north of Marshall, we decided to hit the Tyler Bend Visitors Center and go down to the river and stretch our legs a bit. 

It had been 13+ years since Mel and I had first been here when we were checking out the Buffalo River area for a tourism research paper of mine in college.  I took my NPS Passport book and finally picked up the Buffalo River cancellation stamp!  Finally.

The area is really pretty with a placid pool and gravel bar that rounds a bend to some rapids and big bluff.
