Just got back from three days in Arkansas. I drove my mom to Conway—about a half-hour northwest of Little Rock—to spend some time with my brother’s family. We spent Saturday at Lake Willastein Park in Maumelle.
The way we wound through blocks of apartments after we left the highway I wondered what kind of park it would be. I was pleasantly surprised. There was a small lake, a large pavilion, and a pine forest to enjoy. Coming from the hackberrys, cedars and blackjacks of Oklahoma, the height and uniformity of the pines was striking.
See what I mean?
I’m still unwinding from the trip, but I’ll post more pictures soon.
