Arkansas Ozarks

We spent the Thanksgiving holiday with family in the Arkansas Ozarks. The weather was nice so we made a few stops on the way to Eureka Springs.

We made a stop near Leslie to visit Canaan Cemetery.
My husband's paternal grandparents are buried there.
Canaan is a very old, picturesque cemetery.
I have photographed it several times in the past.
Canaan Cemetery is located on a high peak with scenic views of the surrounding countryside.
Our next stop was the Buffalo National River.
The Buffalo was the first National River. (1972)
The river is a popular fishing, canoeing and camping spot during the summer months.  There was a lone camper on this particular day.
We stopped for lunch at the Town House Cafe on the square in Harrison.
Plate lunches, soup, beans and cornbread - all homemade.
The view from my bedroom on Beaver Lake.
A little color hanging on.
Beaver Lake from the deck. Frequent white-tail deer sightings on this hillside.
The Friday after Thanksgiving most of the men went to the Arkansas/LSU football game in Fayetteville. The women headed to the Simply Scrumptious Tea Room and Emporium for lunch in Eureka Springs.
After a delicious lunch at the Tea Room it was time for shopping.
Eureka was all decked out for Christmas.
Fun afternoon of shopping with two of my favorite people.
It was cold and windy but I know we were warmer than the men in the football stadium.
Thanks for joining me on my latest adventure in the Ozarks.
