    It is a 165 miles long national recreation trail in Arkansas!

    We only did 5 miles of it though.

    Thanksgiving at Devil’s Den State Park ~Part 1

    Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

    yellowrock2 top 1sthike woods thesemenWe went camping for Thanksgiving at Devil’s Den State Park in Arkansas.

    It was wonderful and amazing.

    The first hike we did was Thanksgiving morning on the Yellow Rock trail.

    It goes up to a lookout and is about 3 miles.

    So good!

    There are 3 different loops you can do. We took the Sawmill loop for part of it but crossed the river and took another trail back.

    So good!

    I eat the other food just to get to the pie…

    I saw many other families out enjoying the day together.

    It was definitely an amazing way to spend a day about thankfulness.

    How did you spend Thanksgiving?

    Are you a pie junky like me?

    I bought two more pie crust’s but I am scared to do anything with them!

    I have no self control once something is in my house.

    I keep it out, that is the only self control I have…


    Now I want pie.
