[QUOTE=Bob Landry;70949]If you can swing a trip around the last of October, you can catch a gorgeous color change. It's not the Northeast, but it's gorgeous and won't cost you an arm and a leg for gas to get there.
BTW, all of the Arkansas State Parks that are on lakes have good ramps and courtesy docks. Corps of Engineers control the lakes and under agreement with the parks department, keep the lakes at a certain level durin tourist season, something umheard of in Texas.[/
Now that is unbelievable!
I wish we had that here as well. That makes us "Texas, the NOT so friendly state". I also didn't know there were quartz mines around there as well, I may have to tack on an extra day on the trip.
