Where I've Been Lately - Part Two

To conclude our trip to Broken Bow, we headed to Beaver's Bend.  We visited the museum there,

and took a hike (don't worry---no trekking poles were used, and certainly no wrist straps)

where some of us walked on trees

and acted goofy on trees.

We looked for fish and tadpoles.

and found crawfish,

giant spiders,

a hollow tree or two

and maybe even a fossil?

After a couple of hours on the trail, we were pretty hot and tired, so we headed to the lake to cool off.    We rented kayaks and had a great time learning how to use them in  a rapid-free lake.

Next time, I think that might be the way to go down the river!

A storm was brewing over the dam late in the afternoon, but we made it to our car just in time and headed south.

Right after crossing the Louisiana state line, we spied a huge rainbow that followed us for quite sometime.   The trip was so much fun and the rainbow was definitely the "icing on the cake"!!
