    Here are a few shots of last summer and fall. This is the bluff over White River near Calico Rock.







    Breaking camp at Barkshed.





    Can't remember where I was, maybe Sylamore Creek.





    Beautiful Downtown Boswell Arkansas.





    Unknown one lane bridge.

    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    That looks like a beautiful area to ride around and explore.



    Vaguely reminds me of my old Appalachian stomping grounds in North Carolina, but with its own unique character to be sure.



    Thanks for posting!

    Oh, yeah! That's what I'm talking about! Love the pics! Looks like great riding country. One of my favorite boyhood stories was Where the Red Fern Grows which, of course, was set in the Ozarks. So, that's an area I've wanted to visit at some point in time. I look forward to seeing more pics and ride reports from you. Thanks!

    Love the rocky bluffs and outcroppings. Looks like a great place for some TW bonding!



    I don't know why, but I always stop at the old bridges or what looks like old bridges.



    But we have fun finding and riding over them, don't we!

    Admiral, I'm a bridge hunter too, here are a few from last year. There are only two suspension bridges left in Arkansas, I rode a 236 mile round trip one day just to see this one.



    A few more good ones.

    Very nice. Any of them old RR converted to road bridges?

    One of those is a RR trestle, don't know of any converted ones, but now I have something else to hunt for. Thanks for the idea!

    I seek out anything old and unusual, like.

    The Calico Rock City jail





    The Zion Arkansas post office





    Middle of nowhere abandoned gas station





    Mainstreet Saddle Arkansas





    The Tick Ridge USA community center





    No joke, this cave was the first school house in Arkansas,

    Ravenden Springs.

    Cool pics! Interesting about the cave schoolhouse. Looks like a lot of intriguing history in your area. Thanks for sharing!
