Exploring Arkansas July 2017
It's the only remaining airworthy Marine B-25 bomber in the world - (Doolittle Raiders fame) and it made a stop at the Arkansas Air & Military Museum in Fayetteville to give onlookers an up close experience out of the history books. Rattlesnake Falls is in the deep wilderness of the Ozark National Forest northeast of Mountainburg. -Rattlesnakes aren't the concern though - it's the black bears! One of Arkansas' best kept secrets happens to be the town of Leslie, which still maintains its 1920's- era charm. Steak lovers and cooks gather every May in Magnolia for the World Championship Steak Cook-Off, which is held in conjunction with the Magnolia Blossom Festival. The Pigeon Creek National Recreation Trail north of Mountain Home along Norfork Lake, is a wonderful twenty-mile trail system that's open to mountain bikers and hikers.
