Dec 26, 2014 - Lake Ouachita SP, Mountain Pine, AR

We joined Cindy and Mark for a Christmas / New Year camping trip. We camped from December 26 to January 4. We had our new folding bikes that the kids got us for Christmas! This is a great bike riding park. The weather was cold with a mix of sunny, cloudy and rainy days. We had some good campfire evenings and great food. We enjoyed some local hamburger joints too. We went on two backcountry drives through the Ouachita National Forest: Buffalo Gap Auto Tour and Winona Auto Tour. We also explored bathhouse row in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Apr 21, 2014 - Moved to Lake Ouachita state park

Took the scenic drive to Lake Ouachita . It is the largest lake in Arkansas and we only saw a very small tip of it. Honestly you could go every weekend for a solid year and never stay in the same campground twice. Really beautiful place and this is the best time of year to visit, less people and no humidity! Found out Pippa didn't like the driving too well. She got a little car sick and that lead to no eating or drinking for a couple days. Gave us a little scare. She doing great now. She of course is a hit with other people at the...

Oct 3, 2012 - Hot Springs, Arkansas

Today we started out very lazy, well, I did anyway. Slept 11 hours! You know, I get more sleep now than I ever have had in my life. Pretty cool. John and I took a walk down to the beach by our campsite. Found two turtles having a loving relationship. It was too funny. After they stuck their heads up, they immediately separated and swam away. It was like they got caught by Mom and Dad. We drove into downtown Hot Springs, Arkansas. This is the home of President Clinton. They have a big sign by a fountain stating such, but I didn't get the...

Oct 2, 2012 - President Clinton Library

We entered Arkansas yesterday and went to the Wm. Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark. It was very a very sleek and modern building with a water feature outside, next to Rock Island Line Railroad Bridge (now renamed the President Clinton Bridge). This was also the “walk of tears” that the Indians, Choctaw, Seminoles and others were forced to walk when the government moved them from the East to Oklahoma. Admission was $5.00 (for seniors…yea!) There are 3 floors, with the third floor open in the center so you can look...

Nov 19, 2011 - Travel to Lake Ouachita

Monica, Marc, and Evan (nephew) left home before lunch headed to Lake Ouachita State Park in Arkansas. The drive took about 3.5 hours and was uneventful.Arrived at campsite #6 and got all setup and ready for the kids to come later that night. Weather was partly cloudy. After camp was setup, Marc and Monica headed to Walmart to stock up. Garmin decided to send us to a WalMart in Hot Springs Village, NOT Hot Springs. We got to take a 6 mile ride through and over the mountains over a true 'Pig' trail. Had to cross 3 creeks with water flowing...
