Something of the Marvelous - Cossatot Falls State Park - Wickes, Arkansas - Fall 2014
Never lose an opportunity to see anything that is beautiful.
It is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament. Welcome
it in every fair face, every fair sky, every fair flower.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Another great adventure under my belt, 3 mile hike through a boulder field, busted lens, bruised leg, and a hard hike out at dark, are just a few of the things it took to get this photo today. The sun lit the mountain for 10 min and then was gone. The rocks you see before you are at least 15 ft tall as is the one I climbed down on to get this photo. If you look back to the right in the shot you will see a steep cliff, yep hiked there to but at near dark, and back in the dark. I hope to return here sometime soon and watch the eagles fish this pool at sunrise, but until then I will dream of this amazing spot in the Ouachitas.
