I caught this photo from the NE edge of Mount Judea at dawn. Mt. Judea is the NE extent of the continuous Boston Mountains looking NE towards Bull Shoals Lake (about 60 miles NE). The hills in the distance are along the middle Buffalo National River near the area where Big Creek joins the Buffalo. Unfortunately, there is a huge Commercial Hog Operation about 5 miles above the Buffalo River (outside the National Park Service lands), but the hog waste has permeated the Karst topography and entered Big Creek and then the Buffalo, River causing unacceptable levels of nitrogen and other effluents to pollute our beautiful river. Just does not seem right !!  CLICK TO ENLARGE.

Much warmer this morning. I went out early this morning and found patchy light fog and it had lifted by 7:45 AM except over the Buffalo River below Pruitt. The interaction with the sunlight was pretty, however. In 2 days the tree color change has advanced a bit, with more oranges, and yellows showing of the hillsides. Saw a White-Throated Sparrow in a changing dogwood on the way back:
