THE WHEELS GO ROUND AND ROUND

Monday, July 4 – Another beautiful day in the wilds of Arkansas. We enjoyed the day relaxing in the park, reading, working on hobbies, and cooking steaks on the grill. The typical 4th of July in America!

BIKE TRAIL UPDATE: We went on another bike ride today. We went a couple miles down the road to Two Rivers Park. A 1000-acre tract co-owned by the City of Little Rock and Pulaski County at the intersection of the Arkansas and Little Maumelle Rivers. The city-owned area includes approximately 450 acres of mostly wooded wetlands area, and the county-owned area includes approximately 550 acres of open fields.

What a surprise too! After riding down the trail about a mile and a half we came to another bridge crossing the river.

This bridge is still under construction but when completed this trail will meet with the Big Dam Bridge Trail. As a matter of fact, we could see the Big Bridge down river. WOW! This is going to be an AMAZING trail when complete. It has to be one of the nicer trails in the nation.

There is the Garden Center which county residents can rent garden tracts. About 300 residents take advantage of the gardening opportunities.

We saw a herd/group of deer feeding in the field along the trail. Marsha was able to get pretty close before they took off.
