About halfway between Havana and Paris, you will find Magazine Mountain. Magazine Mountain State Park encompasses the peak, which is also the highest point in Arkansas. The park includes a huge lodge sitting on the very edge of the mountain.
The view to the South from the lodge.
The campground is located near the Northern edge of the mountain, with views such as these just a couple hundred yards from our site.
Lots of places to sit and ponder many of life's questions.
The weather has been awesome. We drove through some heavy rain on Monday morning as we were leaving Texas, but it had cleared by the time we got here. Actually needed a long sleeve to sit out Monday evening. So far, the high each day has been in the low eighties with a light breeze. We could have slept with the windows open each night except for smoke from a neighboring campfire. This is definitely the coolest spot in Arkansas.
Sally and I have gotten in a couple of hikes so far.
We even made it to the summit, and signed the register.
There’s been a couple of so-so sunsets since we’ve been here. Still waiting for the good one.
And, back to that highest mountain in Arkansas thing. I think I’ve stumbled upon another goal for life, maybe.
One down, forty eight to go. I’m not going to Hawaii…
