Old homesteads checker the Ozarks landscape; relics from a harder time. Determination, wits, hard work and sweat were a must, and now I'm determined to [re]visit a few. You got any good suggestions that involve a modest hike?
When you are talking to the locals in Harrison, AR they speak of “the Buffalo” in reverent tones. After a hike along the Buffalo River Trail we understand why. We didn’t mind the cold one bit during our hike. Anybody know how those cool snow “ribbons” form? We’ve never seen anything like it before. Bonus points if you can find The Hound (our van) in the first pic. #400dayweekend#vanlife#buffalorivertrail#hiking#nature#trailalien
Did you think Northwest Arkansas is only about the @oztrailsnwa? Think again. We’ve got some of the most epic, backcountry hiking out towards jasper&ponca.
Shown here is our descent from Eye of the Needle. You crawl through a hole in the rock, then tiptoe across a rock ledge before working your way down a very steep incline. Thankfully there is rope to make the descent a little more manageable. Do not come unprepared. Bring the correct gear: hiking shoes, poles, GLOVES, etc.
Oh, and don’t forget to watch the elk as you get into town. If you see lots of cars lining the highway, they’re probably around!
Spent the day cell reception-free, on an epic hike with these wonderful ladies. We saw so many waterfalls, made awesome new friends (especially jeff, sunny, sue, and jack!), and increased our heart rates quite a bit as we tested our limits. Thanks for the love, the laughs, and the encouragement. Happy birthday Black Panther 🎉🎈 - Theme of the day: content. Until next time 🤙🏼 #kyleslanding#buffalorivertrail#eyeoftheneedle
