Exploring Arkansas February 2013

War Eagle Creek Float, Blanchard Caverns Dripstone Trail, Petit Jean River WMA, Shower Chair White Oak Creek Falls
A lesser known float trip that is peaceful and picturesque is along War Eagle Creek north of Huntsville near Withrow Springs State Park. Previously in a EA episode, the wild cave tour at Blanchard Springs Caverns was featured..during this episode, in the developed section of the cavern, the Dripstone Trail is portrayed. The Petit Jean River Wildlife Management Area south of Dardanelle is one of the best areas in west central Arkansas for viewing shorebirds and wintering waterfowl-not to mention a couple of really neat old bridges. Shower Chair Falls and White Oak Creek Falls north of Ozark in the Ozark National Forest, are just a couple of the falls recently discovered by Brian Emfinger, one of the state's top waterfall explorers, photographers.
