Magnifying Glass- A Haiku

The evidence there

Hidden to the naked eye

I will magnify.

The Japanese Rock Garden- A Haiku

The sands are shifting

The Islands and Mountains move

Relaxing it is

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

2,753 feet above the Petit Jean River Valley lies Mount Magazine. It is full of fantastic views, activities, wildlife, and excellent accommodations. For more information visit here https://www.arkansasstateparks.com/parks/mount-magazine-state-park

 

A while back I researched this area, and I wanted to travel there a few years back, but it was heavily flooded. This year there was no flood and I was looking for an escape free of people and full of fresh air. Beavers Bend State Park answered the call perfectly. It is like a one stop shop for adventure with horseback riding, zip lines, a train, kayaking, hiking, paddle boats, a marina with house boat rental, trout fishing, a lodge, cabins, wood and American Indian art by Choctaw Indians, and wildlife and nature.

I traveled to Caddo Lake to check this beautiful place off my bucket list. Being the only natural lake in Texas, it lives up to everything I have ever read about it, from the history, to the mysterious sightings of Bigfoot, to people just being people. I finally saw a Pileated Woodpecker! This park is definitely a place where you can get lost in the beauty and the overall vibe, which is detached from WiFi, electronics, and the craziness of urban life. Here are a few photos from my trip. Rich McFarlane, my tour guide, from Caddo Lake Bayou Tours was exceptional. I highly recommend his tour https://www.caddolakebayoutours.com/

Life calls for us to detach sometimes and enjoy serenity, peace, and the sounds of nature. I do it often and have found many places that harbor much beauty. Recently, I loaded up for a trip into the Trinity River Wildlife Refuge. There are many birds, mammals, amphibians, gators, snakes, turtles, fish, etc. The quiet forest in the refuge gives way to a musical symphony of sounds uncommon in the urban jungle. A beautiful chorus of song and dance from the whimsical creatures all around. Here are a few photos I shot while exploring. Enjoy!
