Exploring Arkansas August 2013

The swimmin' hole at Falling Water Falls near Ben Hur in the Ozark National Forest is rated one of the best if not the best in the entire Ozark region. Sans Souci Landing southwest of Osceola along the Mississippi River is named after an 1854 plantation that occupied the site. It was also called Plum Point and was mentioned in Mark Twain's book – Life on the Mississippi. Bradley Park along the Little Buffalo River in Jasper is a serene setting for fishing and taking a cool dip. The designated Wildflower Routes of Arkansas contain 600 species of wildflowers along 1000 miles of highways.
