Late summer conditions in Arkansas are typically dry, dry, dry! With a slight chance of rain in the future forecast, I’m fairly certain that things won’t change in the near future. That doesn’t stop me, however, from daydreaming about the soggier months and waterfalls.
I thought I’d share a few photos from a Richland Creek adventure in April. When water is plentiful, Richland Creek comes alive! It’s a waterfall hunter’s paradise!
Seasoned Richland Creek hikers understand that the hikes to some of these falls can be challenging….
….and even dangerous….
…but worth it!
Of course, many beautiful specimens adorn the wilderness, which makes the hike more bearable.
The great thing, however, about the waterfalls of Richland Creek is that some of them are easily accessible. A great example, Falling Water Falls, is visible from the car window!
The U.S. Forest Service has great information on their website about Richland Creek, which can be accessed at http://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/osfnf/recreation/hunting/recarea/?recid=43479&actid=54. Waterfall season is still probably a few months away, therefore, this trip down memory lane will have to suffice for now. I think I can keep myself occupied since there are so many interesting things to see and do in the Natural State year round!
