Over Memorial Day a group of my friends went on our second annual camping trip (see this post for the inaugural trip to Big Bend), this time on the Buffalo River in the northern part of Arkansas. Here are the pictures to prove it…
BBQ stop near Texarkana
stopping at a scenic overlook on the way to the park
Here are some things it turns out I like: 1. sitting around 2. making dinner and 3. drinking wine with friends. The hikes around the Buffalo are mild (but beautiful!), so this trip was much more centered around the campfire, which I really loved. Woot!
dessert, before it was roasted over the fire
more dessert, roasted just the way I like
I wish I could remember the name of this hike :/. It was about four miles round trip, and landed us at this incredible overlook.
On Day 2 Michael and I ventured down this creek bed looking for a trail we never found. We did, though, make it up a bluff on our own (scratched and sweaty to tell the tale).
On our last day we canoed from Steel Creek (our campsite) to Kyle’s Landing, about 8 miles and four hours later.
See you again someday, Arkansas!
