    Cataract Falls ~Spencer, IN

    Friday, May 26th, 2017

    We went to the wrong part of Lieber State Recreation Area to start with!

    Which is of course a great way to start a long day of driving…


    We did get to see this turtle, a flooded road, and a pretty path though on our scenic route…

    Cataract Falls is actually over 30mins south of the main recreation area.

    I have been there before, oops…


    There is a fee for getting into the Recreation Area.

    It is around $5 though per car.

    So not bad.

    We are learning about bridges soon so I found the different way this one was built interesting.

    The lower falls was flooded so we ended up only seeing the upper falls this time but it was impressive!

    Beautiful place!

    Lake Wedington Recreation Area, AR

    Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

    I was feeling a bit caged in so I asked my husband if we could make the long drive into Arkansas to hike.

    I like the hiking that is closer to us but I needed mountains, forests, and maybe a little bit different.

    We ended up at Lake Wedington after our first location ended up not being where I thought on the map and another 2hours away…

    A little too far.

    They have this really nice bike trail across the road from the park.

    It is around 8miles long one way.

    It is not a loop so you do have to retrace your steps to get back to the car.

    I have read and saw the evidence while hiking (campsites and fire pits) that people do overnights here.

    We only hiked a couple hours though.

    I was in the mood for something a little harder but it ended up being a good hike.

    Nick kept asking Justin what tree the trail blaze was on so he would have to run back and look.

    The idea was for him to pay better attention and see them while hiking.

    The trail was marked with blue blazes.

    I made sure Nick took a picture of me, proof I do go on these hikes!

    Gifts from my two little men.

    We accendently took a detour on an old access road.

    The trail goes off to the right and the road keeps going straight.

    We ended up turning around to head back around here anyway.

    I told the boys to try to not let the plants touch them.

    It was pretty funny to watch.

    Heading back to the SUV (I get in big trouble for calling it a car).

    This little guy was hanging out on the trail and almost got stepped on.

    Good thing I am always looking at the ground (I am afraid I will trip on stuff).

    Nick says I am missing everything because I am not looking up but he missed this little guy and I saw him!

    So there!

    I just miss everything else…
