From Mt. Nebo State Park

 

Located only 89 miles South of Mystic Caverns, Mt. Nebo is a family friendly inexpensive get-away. I spent this last weekend with my wife and children in Cabin #62 at Mt. Nebo State Park. The cabin was built by the CCC in the 1930's. It was rustic, but very nice. It had one bedroom with a queen bed, one bathroom, a kitchen, and a living area with two fold down futons.

Saturday morning, I drove about .5 mile to Sunrise Point and took the following pictures:


 

During the day Saturday, I hiked to the waterfall not far from our cabin. Unfortunately, there hadn't been enough rain lately to have much flow. The picture below is of three young ladies from Little Rock underneath the waterfall.

I saw some berries & wildflowers hiking with my children Saturday...

The top of Mt. Nebo has beautiful sandstone rock...

My daugter found what appears to be the fossil imprint of a tree in a piece of sandstone...

Saturday Night while my wife and children were grilling in the backyard of our cabin, I took some pictures of the sunset...


When we woke up Sunday morning, it was foggy. Below is a picture of the back of our cabin Sunday morning.

 While we were visiting we saw quite a few deer...

We had a wonderful time exploring Mt. Nebo State Park, and we plan to return next fall. We recommend visiting all of Arkansas' State Parks, but don't forget to visit us at Mystic Caverns where it is always 59 degrees!
