Exploring Arkansas February 2015

Called a pre-1865 historical re-enactment or a mountain man rendezvous, such gatherings are held across the country on a regular basis -- re-living the lifestyle and adventure of the American frontier. Many outdoor enthusiasts flock to the Mulberry River in the Ozarks during spring to float it…but during Autumn the Mulberry turns majestic, offering the perfect photographic outing! Horse drawn wagons have long since faded away from the American scene, but a wagon restorer near Botkinburg is making sure wagons of the Old West are kept alive through his one-man wagon company.
