Scenic Sunday # 34

'Our' cabin on Mt. Nebo.  November 27, 2006.

'Our' cabin on Mt. Nebo. November 27, 2006.

This is my post for the weekly meme Scenic Sunday.  To see more Scenic Sunday pictures, or to join the fun and post your own pictures, click HERE.

The cabin in the photo above is Cabin #60 in Mt. Nebo State Park, Arkansas.  But Betsy and I refer to it as ‘our’ cabin on Mt. Nebo.  We’ve stayed in this cabin four times already and are going back this week for our fifth stay.

Mt. Nebo was a favorite of Betsy’s BG — ‘Before George’ — although she never stayed in Cabin 60.  Betsy took me to Mt. Nebo for the first time in 2006, and that was the first time we stayed in this cabin.

The cabin is just the right size for two.  It has a fireplace in the living room, which makes Betsy very happy.  The cabin is on the edge of the mountain top and has a fantastic view of the valley below.  And we are often visited by deer in the evening.

Betsy and I will be gone for the entire week — hiking, searching for waterfalls, and enjoying the beautiful scenery.  We hope you all have a wonderful week and we’ll see you next Sunday.
