Arkansas is Awesome!

Wanted to share some pics from a stop over in Arkansas on my last cross country tour.  A huge thanks to the Chappell’s for taking me in, Cynthia for making me feel right at home down south and Charles for showing me some great spots and hikes in the Buffalo River Valley.  Can’t wait to see ya’ll again soon!
