Mount Magazine

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday. . . even though it's freezing outside!! Well, this weekend Nathan and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary!! We decided to celebrate by visiting Mt. Magazine State Park. It is our goal to visit every state park in Arkansas because after all, Arkansas is a very beautiful state. I think sometimes people forget that. Once we arrived at the new Lodge that was just opened in 2006, we walked in and were completely awe struck by the huge wall of windows displaying the most beautiful view I think I have ever seen in Arkansas. The lodge is amazing! We felt like we were in Colorado, not Arkansas. If you haven't gone yet, you must!
We hiked to the summit which is the highest point in Arkansas at 2,753. There is a pretty neat monument made of stone in the shape of Arkansas. After that we went on the Bear Hollow trail until Nathan's recently sprained ankle had enough. (thanks for hangin in there nate for me!) On the way home, we decided to take an alternate route and go see the Blue Mountain Lake that we had seen in our view atop Mt. Magazine. So glad we did!! It is a beautiful secluded lake with huge pine trees and spectacular views. Here are a few photos for you, and if you are interested in purchasing any or just looking click here. Thanks for looking, and feel free to comment on any photos you may like (or not like)!
