Mount Magazine is the home of the highest point in Arkansas, which as you can see from the picture above is not all that high. 2,573 feet is laughable to our Utah folk, but it still felt great to hike the rugged, albeit semi-flat terrain. Arkansas has been in a drought this year so the rivers and streams were nonexistent, but it didn't stop us from using our imagination. I was so glad we found this place. We heard it is absolutely gorgeous in October. We tried to get up there again, but we quickly learned that it books a year in advance so perhaps next year.
We are so thankful for my dad and his willingness to pop over last minute. I literally called him the week before and pitched him the idea. The girls loved being spoiled by him. I can't tell you how many times they still tell me that their Papa took them to two parks in one day. An idea that has seriously blown their minds! Hahaha. Thanks dad. We all love you here.
