I wish I lived in Arkansas...(warning pic heavy post!)

Here are a few pictures we took on our trip to Arkansas 2 weeks ago.....

This was taken inside Blanchard Springs Caverns. If I remember correctly these are called ribbon formations.

This is also in the caverns, these formations contain large amounts of calcite, which makes them sparkly and snowy looking.

This was probably our favorite formation, they call it the battleship can you see why?
This is in Cotter, not far from where most of my family lives, I believe this is part of the White River.

Bull Shoals dam.

We rode on a ferry in Peel over part of Bull Shoals lake.
Then we drove to Missouri with my cousin, her husband and Daughter and paid money to have rolls thrown at us! Monkey was really excited to eat here because he had seen this place on a show on the travel channel!

And of course, being the good rednecks we are we just HAD to go see the first, and biggest Bass Pro Shops in the world. This place was unbelievable! (we also visited the Bass Pro in Branson Missouri, but my cousins assured us it was NOTHING compared to this one. Wow they weren't kidding!)

Arkansas is such a beautiful state. There is so much history, and beautiful county there to explore. If I could ever convince my parents to pack up and go back with me, I would be there in a heartbeat. You can take a girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl!

Thanks for the snowman love on your visit to my blog! You make Arkansas sound so wonderful -- we've only ever driven through there -- and it IS a beautiful state!

And just think... you saw it in the gloomiest, ugliest month of the year. Ok that's not true. February is the worst month, but still.

Springtime here is like heaven.
