Drive around Arkansas
6/1/18
  Some days you just need to drive. Periodically I just take off and drive into the night. Thursday afternoon I drove north past Heber Springs through Melbourne and Yellville. Then west below Harrison and down to Jasper and over to Ponca. From there it was over though St Paul and down to Ozark and Greenwood. Then I crossed the border into Oklahoma where the Talimena Scenic Drive was mounted. I was there that I slept from 12:00 to 5:30 a.m. Across the great and long ridge to the east with the sunrise was my next direction. From there it was through Mena to Mt Ida where breakfast was had at the Mt Ida Cafe. The next stop was Charlton Recreation Area along Hwy 270. After shooting through Hot Springs the newly completed Hwy 70 was travelled. Home was next in line.
