I had the chance this weekend to meet a good friend of mine who lives in Arkansas and hang out a bit, and took a day to go out on a photography tour of Northwest Arkansas. We stayed in Fayetteville and attended an Razorback baseball game, and lucked out to get to see them play Alabama. After a couple of innings, marginal storms moved across the area dropping a good amount of rain with imbedded lightning so we ended up with about a 45 minute rain delay. Once play resumed, it was 10pm and Bama was leading 8-6 in the fifth inning and we called it a night. When we saw the final score ended up with Alabama winning 17-8 , and they had to be playing well into the wee hours of the morning so I'm thankful we didn't stick around.
We got up the next day and traveled first to the north to Eureka Springs, not so much to see the town but it is nestled in some beautiful hill country. I love taking the back roads because that's where you see the unique stuff, and we did end up getting quite a few nice shots. After driving around in the north for a couple of hours and stopping by Pea Ridge Battlefield, we ate at Zaxby's in Springdale and headed south to Devil's Den. We did a little hiking along the main trails and saw a nice waterfall, and found some photo opportunities. We finished up the evening with some good BBQ and a couple of beers at the Boar's Nest in Fayetteville. It was a great weekend out, and ended up being a beautiful day with lots of scenery. Here are some photos from the short trip:
