    Beautiful! I haven't seen a sky lit up like that since I was in the south Pacific!

    Gotta give props to my BIL. My Sis and he were showing me around the area and he said I was gonna see the best sunset, ever. I didn't give it much thought, as he does drink, now and then. He told me to get my camera ready, as we approached a bridge, that crosses the Narrows. No traffic was behind us so we had time to stop, on the bridge, so I could snap a few shots, out the window.

    Beautiful sunset! The cloud formations behind the mountain are amazing in the second picture. Thanks for posting those.

    Those are nice. Thanks for sharing. I have never been to Arkansas, but those make me want to.

    Arkansas is an amazingly beautiful state, many deeply wooded and hilly terrain, and even if you're just driving through, a treat for the eyes.

    A few more shots from that day.

    Next time you're up that way, look me up we're only about 30 minutes from there and fish the Little Red frequently.

    Thanks again ole for the pics -- really beautiful country we've got, eh?

    Incidentally, gang, mark your calendars for 2017 -- there will be total solar eclipse Aug 21, 2017, that will pass through many of the central states.

    As with any solar eclipse, the penumbra and umbra bands are fairly narrow -- the further you are away on either side from the line of totality, the smaller percent of the sun will be blocked by the moon, but any photo (or astronomy) buffs, there are plenty of areas in the US where you can go to see the 100% eclipse.

    My Dad told me about a solar eclipse when he was a kid in Kentucky (I don't think it was total) and how all the kids and many others had gathered on a big high hill to watch, but his mother didn't let either him or his brother to go... "Something bad might happen."

    Naturally, a gazillion of "Apocalypse Now" predictors will be in full swing for the total eclipse. Armageddon cannot be far away, and other drivel. Of course with the Mayan long count calendar being a total bust, and the 2012 Last Judgment predictions, you'd think that these people would learn. But no.

    Thanks, guys. I've hiked to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, it don't look that tall in my pics. Part of the trail is on a boardwalk, anchored in the vertical rock, 600+ feet over the water............the pucker factor is off the scale.
