Down Memory Lane: Mount Nebo (2009)

Scenes from our visit to Mount Nebo, Arkansas. March, 2009.

If you have visited here for any length of time (or have visited Betsy’s blog) you have heard us speak of Mount Nebo in Arkansas.  Betsy knew of this place before we met, so she gets all the credit for introducing me to it.

Mount Nebo State Park is atop Mount Nebo, near Dardanelle, Arkansas.  The mountain rises about 1800 feet above the floor of the Arkansas River valley and offers wonderful views in just about every direction.  Sunrises and Sunsets are simply spectacular.

The park has rustic cabins, most built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.  We have our own favorite cabin perched on the edge of the mountaintop with a wonderful view of the valley below.  We can enjoy beautiful sunsets without leaving the deck of the cabin.

The park also has several miles of hiking trails and a couple of nice waterfalls.  So you can understand why we enjoy going there so much.

The picture in the collage above were taken in March, 2009, while visiting Mount Nebo to celebrate my birthday.  We had an ice storm while we were there, so that gave us a great excuse just to relax and enjoy the fireplace in the cabin.  We weren’t going to let a little thing like ice mess up our vacation!

    I have never been to Mount Nebo but it sure has magical views that you and Betsy have shared. The collage you made is great. Nothing like a cozy fireplace to sit in front of while the ice created a wonderland outside. That birthday cake sure makes me hungry early this morning! Wishing you a good day George.

    With the absence of a TV and a phone, that is an ideal place to shelter oneself from the troubles in the world LOL.

    The first time you guys showed this place, I was totally surprised….did not realize Arkansas had such beauty to offer. I guess most states have beauty we haven’t heard of though.
