Brothers Trip 2011

Backpacking in Arkansas: Ozark Highlands Trail and Buffalo River Trail

As you can see, the water was extremely high that people were kayaking on creeks or should I say cricks?


Mark and Joe

Bug again

This is where Joe jumped to his death...almost.  Instead he just got wet and we laughed.

Another bug

Hydration is a must even in Arkansas where you should be able to live by osmosis with the 100% humidity!

Machete anyone?

The "creek" we were supposed to cross was a raging river.  We waited until a boat came by and begged a ride across.  Quote from the driver, "F-in, (insert any sentence) F-in."

Joe and Mark



The nightly ring of wet shoes.

"Wanna go for a ride in my new vehicle?  Wanna go for a ride in my new car?"


Mark, Joe, James



Ron's blood in a cemetery.

Panoramas of the incredible views from the bluffs.

Many thanks to James for planning this trip!  In spite of the mileage, I will always cherish these memories!  Next trip, somewhere dry...
