Betsy and I have been going to Mt. Nebo State Park in Arkansas for several years. We love ‘our’ cabin on the rim of the mountain and the gorgeous views of the setting sun we get from the back porch.

But we almost always make a trip to nearby Mt. Magazine State Park to enjoy more mountain views and to do some hiking. Mt. Magazine is the highest point in Arkansas, and we’ve hiked to Signal Hill, the highest point, several times.

This year we were able to share Mt. Magazine with our friends Patti and Neal. In addition to hiking with us to Signal Hill, they also enjoyed the views from some of the overlooks around the mountain.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  Last week many people shared their view of the sky.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

While we were in Arkansas in March, Betsy and I visited Mount Magazine State Park on a dreary rainy day.  Mount Magazine has many wonderful views, several good hiking trails which we enjoy, and a wonderful restaurant that serves delicious lunches.

As we were getting ready to head back down the mountain we stopped at an overlook of the Petit Jean River Valley.  The sky was gray and dull looking, but there were clouds rolling over the mountains on the other side of the valley.  Even though the sky is indistinct, I like this picture anyway.
