Exploring Arkansas August 2011

DeGray Lake Snorkeling, Kayak Fishing, Sugarloaf Little Red, Grand Cypress Natural Area
Snorkeling at DeGray Lake near Arkadelphia isn't quite like the coral reefs of the Caribbean, but you do have a wonderful opportunity to explore "rock reefs" and walls underwater The sport of kayak fishing is coming of age with new kayak designs that are tailor made for the kayak angler in getting to those secluded "honey holes." The other Sugarloaf mountain in the Heber Springs area is the one along the Little Red River Hiking to the summit is a challenge in itself-especially the final few feet. The Grand Cypress Natural Area located in the Bayou Meto Wildlife Management Area near Stuttgart is a sterling example of the wetland habitat that once covered a vast area of the southern region.
