This is some of the scenery on Crowley's Ridge last week-end. Diane and I were brave and took 4 boys camping. We had a lot of orange, red and yellow trees to look at.
This is the sign going into the park. Everyone should look up Crowley's Ridge on wikipedia.com.It is the only formation of it's kind on earth.
Beautiful tree on a hill,Diane took this on the way to her house.
These are ducks that stay year round at Poinsett State Park, where we stayed.
Another view of the lake and trees.
This is looking back the other way.See the cypress on the right.Looks almost like an ever-green.
These are the heathens, I mean angels, that we had with us.
Another look at the ducks.
This is the play-ground, beside it is a field they often play ball in.
This is a shot of the visitor center.
This is the camping spot across from us,notice the hill rising up behind it. Lake Poinsett is located on the ridge.
You can't see it, but the boys are going down hill.There is a gully ahead of them.
Diane took this,I'm eating a brownie and reading. Notice the coat and the lovely hair-do.
Cooking sausage and biscuits,Coffee pot is ready.
Early morning shot of the lake.It was a nice day,about 70 F.
This is before everyone accidentally fell, slid, or was pushed in the lake.
Another dry,clean shot.Kinda chilly still.
This is the same picture that is on the web page for Poinsett State Park.
I don't know about Diane, but I had fun. The boys had fun showing off, and showing out. It was a little cool at night, some of the boys weren't prepared for cool weather camping.(one brought shorts to wear). The trails were blocked this weekend....The National Guard was doing maneuvers.The boys wanted to do the trails and protested a bit.
Someones cow was loose and lowed all night. That was a little bothersome. The deer are in rut right now, I saw 5 doe's when I came back from the store.(and from getting Jon's pillow)So deer were crashing through the brush less that 30 feet from camp. But all and all, it was a good weekend. The boys loved it, and thats what makes my world go round.
I hope everyone out there had a good weekend. I pray for the travelers in Arkansas and Missouri .With deer in rut, the doe's are on the run and no place is safe right now.You will see them every where. So drive safe and watch out for bambi.
God bless and watch over you. Donna
