On Wednesday, I made a trip to Pedestal Rocks in Arkansas. Even though it is quite a bit south of Parthenon, it looked like winter. There was very little green yet and very few windflowers. I did enjoy several Pine Warblers and Blue Gray Gnatcatchers, and a beautiful pair of  Yellow Throated Warblers. Using my Canon 50D and 400 and f/5.6 Lens I was able tot get 124 photographs of them:

Here are a few:

A week ago today, a warmer day than today, I took a drive down to Pelsor, Arkansas. Its a short drive from my home. I noticed that the Sand Gap Area (Pelsor, Arkansas) has a new General Store; the Hankins General Store. I believe it is the old Pelsor Post Office. and at one time was the home of Blue Mountain Bakery; now in Jasper on the town square. It is well stocked with goods and they make really nice sandwiches also. Going in was like stepping into the 1950’s for me. There was original hardwood flooring and a pot bellied store for warmth. Deer heads and bear skins hang on wall of the store.

After lunch, I drove over to Ft. Douglas on the Piney River and then took a Forest Service Road south along the river. I spotted a beautiful old home facing the river about a mile south of the Highway 123 river crossing. It must have been quite a mansion in its day; still is to me.
