Watery Wednesday: Dierks Lake

Dierks Lake, Arkansas. February 27, 2012.

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

Betsy and I went searching for waterfalls on our first day in Arkansas, and while coming back from a bushwhack to see Panther Bluff Falls, we met the caretaker of a camping area nearby who recommend we visit  Dierks Lake, which was only a mile or so down the road.

Dierks Lake was formed when the Army Corps of Engineers built a dam on the Saline River in southwestern Arkansas.  The picture above was taken near the public boat ramp on the lake.  I’m glad we took the caretaker’s advice.

    It is beautiful, and the water and reflection are so pretty. Ask Betsy to tell you my comment about you on that bridge that she posted today. Look at it and see if you can see what I did.
