Friday, August 12 – Still nonstop doctor appointments, luncheons and visiting. We are gone so much, we have forgotten what our motorhome looks like.

The weather has been beautiful. Actually this morning it was a bit chilly…52. We haven't seen that number since January.

While doing some cleaning the other day, we found a piece of wire. We placed it by the MH until we had time to put it away. We weren't sure what we would use it for but Bella helped us out with that problem. Marsha walked out the door and found this…


We guess Bella thought it was her new cage…LOL

FLASHBACKJuly 4 – While we were in Little Rock, we had a great hike at Pinnacle Mountain. Pinnacle Mountain is a day-use park dedicated to environmental education, outdoor recreation, and preservation. The park encompasses 2,000 acres. The park's dominant natural feature is Pinnacle Mountain, which rises more than a thousand feet above the Arkansas River Valley. Besides hiking trails, this park also offers mountain bike trails.

There are ten different trails. We hiked a couple others but really enjoyed this trail.


Length: 2 miles
Time: 1.5 to 2 hours
Difficulty: Moderate

The trailhead starts at the Arkansas River overlook in the upper parking lot at the visitor center. The 2-mile loop enters a heavily forested valley after leaving the old rock quarry area.


The views were breath taking.


The trail was sometimes very rocky.


Sometimes it was smooth sailing.

One of the many over looks.

We had a very hot day, but the hike was a great way to enjoy the day. It is another one of the great places to see when visiting Little Rock.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see ya'll back real soon. Have a great day!



  1. That picture of Bella is priceless. Such a ham. Nice to have some cooler temps. We had a few days of nice weather and now we're headed back up into the 90's.

  2. Love that shot of Bella!!
    And looks like pretty country out there! Nina

  3. How funny that Bella found a new home. Looks like a long, hot hike to me but glad you made it back.

  4. That photo of Bella is soooo funny! What a nut!

  5. I've always been amazed at the places cats will choose to curl up in. My guess is that they were so crowded in a litter after birth that they feel comforted by crowded spaces.

  6. I have to say that building is so tacky. Oh, I think "tacky" is a Canadian word. "Garish", "overdone".

    We have our cat now and she told me she would like to meet Bella. She is 14 years old and stone deaf.

  7. Thanks for another great trip planner. Will add this to the future stops. Especially loved the picture of Bella...what a clever girl! And John says cats are dumb!!!

  8. Wow... we had no idea that Arkansas was that beautiful.
    Hope you two are doing well... oh... you three. Cant forget Bella.

  9. Seeing Bella in that cage makes me wonder what our cats and dogs are really thinking sometimes.

    Your trail hike looked terrific and the pictures were beautiful. That's our favourite kind of day!

  10. Pinnacle Mountain hike...something on our bucket list...when it's not so hot! LOL You two amaze us how the heat doesn't bother you!


Thanks for leaving us a comment. We enjoy reading them. Have a great day!
