Our plan for part of the day at the Nature Center

Gathering inside the Center

It's almost 10 A.M. and we are ready

Brandon -  our leader for our first trail

Explaining some of the history

....and there was plenty of history!

Even Fort Smith got some rain!  Duh!

170 acres and we've only gone 1/2 mile

...and around and around we go!

Yes, Spring was in the air

...and we liked it!

Our fearless leaders, Gerry and Bill

It was a beautiful day to be out....

....and a beautiful place to be

...and lunch on the lake was nice too!

Wondering if we have to leave this place!

...there is one "STUPID" man in the white shirt....

Our lunch spot...nice!

...and now on to the Barracks Courthouse and Jail

The initial marker of the Indian Treaty Boundary dated 1858

...and a map to prove it!


and established in 1825.  Indians on the West others on the East.


Trail of Tears Overlook

Where the Poteau and Arkansas River join

...and so since we were having such a good time we thought we would treat ourselves to a trolley ride before we head home.
