It was a great pleasure visiting the Walmart Museum, which is free, this is the location that started what we know as Walmart today. The museum also has a wonderful ice cream shop to purchase treats. Walmart has always been a favorite stop of mine because of the selection of products they offer and the friendly helpful associates especially in towns where options are few. Here are a few photos from my visit and a link for more information. https://www.walmartmuseum.com/content/walmartmuseum/en_us.html

There are many roads in the United States, and many will be missed because of freeways or flying across America. However, if you go and search, there are many beautiful sights and places to drive. The Pig Trail Scenic Byway is one of those roads. It’s known as Arkansas 23. I found it as pleasant a drive as the Smoky Mountains or the Blue Ridge Mountains. This route is known as the Pig Trail because many Arkansas Razorback fans travel it to Fayetteville for games. Wooo Pig Sooie! Enjoy the photos! See you on the road.

On my recent road trip, I was able to visit the Thorncrown Chapel which was designed by E. Fay Jones who apprenticed under the famous Frank Lloyd Wright. The design was inspired by Sainte-Chapelle in Paris, France. With all the glass windows it leaves itself to a perfect spot for prayer and weekly Sunday morning services. I found great peace and beauty there. A place where you can truly feel the holy spirit.

On a recent road trip, I took time to visit this beautiful chapel. It’s located in Bella Vista, Arkansas up in the Quachita Mountains. The chapel was designed to celebrate God and his creations. The views are spectacular as it is made of glass so that you see the forest and mountains. If you see God in nature, you will feel right at home inside this magnificent piece of architecture.

Located in the Petit Jean River Valley of Arkansas is a beautiful state park with many hiking trails, a swimming pool, tennis courts, lake, fishing, etc. I really liked Cedar Falls. If you look close you will see the falls in the hole. The valley was amazing! The rock formations are called the turtles and the cave is Rock Cave. Here are a few of my photos while hiking several areas. For more information visit here https://www.arkansasstateparks.com/parks/petit-jean-state-park

 

 

A few photos from my visit to this exceptional park in Arkansas. In the Bible Mount Nebo is the place where Moses died. Perhaps the name for this park is derived from the similarities in mountains. These photos were taken along the rim trail. To learn more about this park visit here https://www.arkansasstateparks.com/parks/mount-nebo-state-park
