Buffalo National River, Arkansas

In 1972 the Buffalo River was declared a National River, one of the few remaining free-flowing, undammed river in the lower 48 states.  It originates at the highest part of the Boston Mountains of the Ozarks and flows 135 miles before joining the White River.  The National River is popular for camping, float trips, and fishing.  There are over 100 miles of hiking trails.  The best way to see the river are by the trails or a float trip.  I’m looking forward to a return trip to explore the river!

Rocky Mountain Elk were introduced to the region a few years ago.  The herd now numbers around 800.

Fall in the Ozarks

I spent a wonderful week in Missouri with the grandkids while their parents were on vacation.  NO adult supervision!!  They kept poor ole granny busy,  getting them to school, cheer, riding lessons, church activities, dentist.  Thankfully everything was written out for me and I didn’t miss anything or forget a child anywhere!

Fall in the Ozarks (actually anytime of the year) is beautiful.
