On the Trail Again

What a wonderful weekend! The weather actually cooled down into the 80’s with very low humidity for a couple of days (not typical Arkansas weather for this time of year!). Well, that bit of a cool spell was all it took to get me back in the great outdoors. Fall is definitely my favorite time of year! I really, really wanted to go hiking/camping this weekend, but we had to help our youth group work a concession stand at the Razorback game (did I mention I HATE football?) Saturday evening, so we couldn’t venture to far out of town. We just hopped on our mountain bikes instead and rode down to the Lake Fayetteville trail for a nice short ride. Not bad for a middle-of-town bike trail. We did a little exploring and I am so excited that we found a route there that doesn’t require riding along the busy highway. We have absolutely no shoulders here in Arkansas, so it is a little scary! We spent Sunday afternoon at the craft fair in Prairie Grove, and then making peach jam and salsa back at home. Unfortunatly, I couldn’t find any Arkansas peaches this summer, I think the late frost ruined most of the crop=( Anyways, the jam still turned out tasty! If I don’t eat all of it myself, it may being showing up on Etsy soon=)

The heat and humidity were back with a vengence today (Monday), but we just had to go hiking anyways. We did make sure it was a sunrise hike though to avoid the hottest part of the day! Here are a couple of pictures from our hike at the Lost Bridge park trail near Beaver Lake:


Can’t wait until there are three of us in this picture!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog…I actually found yours a few days ago and didn’t post a comment yet. I loved your post about being an elementary art teacher…I was an art ed. major, then found the perfect job as a children’s librarian right after college. I love telling people I read children’s stories and color all day, they get so jealous!
