Mount Magazine, Arkansas
Last week I joined the local OLLI group for the last hiking outing of this season to Mount Magazine. We rode the limo bus to Mount Magazine and had a buffet lunch at the lodge perched atop Mt. Magazine and afterwards we all took a mile and a half loop hike at Signal Hill which is the highest point in Arkansas. I did not have to get acclimated to the height as is necessary at some of the higher peaks in Colorado.
always try to include an unusual picture when I can. Here, as it was explained to me is fresh (well relatively so; perhaps a couple of hours old) bear scat! The leader poked it a little and uncovered the fresher stuff in the middle of the dried outer portion. Fortunately, we didn't see any.
