Fall color is always a wonderful time in Arkansas. Early in the season (the second week of October) you will see the colors begin to change up in the Ozarks and on the high-points of the state like Mount Magazine and Rich Mountain. As the color continues south the Ouachita Mountains turn beautiful yellows and reds. Finally by mid November we still have color left in the lower parts of the state. Just pick a pretty weekend and head out on one of the many scenic drives or maybe a state park.
This year we had a bit of a problem with that last part. October 2009 became the wettest on record. Now for many this made for a dreary indoor where those without a true adventure spirit stayed inside and watched football and reruns. But they missed some good stuff.
Bring on the Arkansas waterfalls! With a mixture of water and fall color those who ventured out were treated with some of the most beautiful scenery in the country.
