DAY 1 - "SCENIC 7"

2014.04.23
pixel
Beginning the journey on a cold and wet day - overlooking 1.3 million acres of pristine national forests in the "Arkansas Grand Canyon"

I had to lean over a fence to get this "crooked" picture!

Signs of an Arkansas spring include the brilliant whites of the dogwood and the soft pinks of redbuds
pixel
The people living in homes overhanging both sides of a 40-mile ridge have views that are unimaginable!
pixel
The dogwoods are so abundant in the forests, it almost looks like snow among the trees
pixel
On the southern part of Hwy 7, the mountains become hills and farmland with a beauty all their own
pixel
During a break in the constant rain, the fog and mists covered the tops of the mountains of the Arkansas River Valley
pixel
The sides of the road are lined with red clover in full bloom

Hwy 7 runs the entire length of Arkansas, north to south. It is a winding and beautiful "scenic byway" that is recognized nationally for both car and motorcycle travel. We rode almost all of Hwy 7 on Monday, most of it in a light to moderate rainfall! But, we enjoyed the mountainous beauty of our area to the wooded farmlands of the southern portion, before we stopped after an 8-hour day.
