Gerri and I flew down to Petit Jean State Park (KMPJ) yesterday (10/27/19) for some hiking and lunch. The airport is on the state park grounds, albeit not within easy walking distance to the lodge since it's on the opposite side of the lake. But simply call the lodge and they send a shuttle ($20 round trip if you're not spending the night). It's a beautiful state park, the first in Arkansas, poised atop Petit Jean Mountain.. The lodge and cabins are CCC vintage. Some cabin...most in fact...have amazing views off the mountain or into the Cedar Creek Canyon. The hiking is fabulous, we did 8 miles yesterday, the park offers about 20...25...miles of trails. Cedar Falls is beautiful (wet weather, running yesterday since it's been raining here of late), the food at the lodge is good. Highly recommended for a day or weekend getaway. If staying overnight, the cabins are CHEAP, at least they are right now, only $80 per night or so. https://www.arkansasstateparks.com/parks/petit-jean-state-park A black vulture sunning himself on a rock. He stayed dead still for the longest time...I at first thought it was a sculpture. A side streamette tumbling down to the trail. Cedar Falls A cool natural bridge formation. Note Gerri standing just to the right of the leg. The view off the mountain from one of the cabin's back porch/yard. Okay, maybe not a view off the mountain...rather a view across Cedar Creek Canyon to the mountain on the other side. The mountain/canyon opens up just to the right of this photo and one can see for miles up the Arkansas River Valley below.
