Don Gammie Turkey Trot - 2012

While visiting relatives for the Thanksgiving Holiday I was invited to participate in the Don Gammie Turkey Trot Thanksgiving morning. The Turkey Trot is an annual fund-raising event for the Grassy Knob Fire Department near Eureka Springs, AR. Don Gammie is retired and lives in the community. Here is a link to a recent article about Mr. Gammie from the Carroll County News.

Here we are ready to trot.
At the sound of the fire truck horn, the runners were off up the hill.
Even though the morning was overcast and chilly it was a beautiful day for a walk through the forest in the Arkansas Ozarks.
Where are they going?
Stan and Joe found a "short cut" back to the finish line.
Mr. Gammie crosses the finish line.
He walked the one mile with a friend.

It was a Thanksgiving morning to remember. A time to be thankful for family and community.
A time to appreciate the beauty of the Arkansas Ozarks.
