Fish and Wildlife Services, where we currently volunteer, treats us very well with a schedule based on three days on and four days off. This gives us more than enough time for short and long excursions to explore Arkansas and the Ozarks.
Nature is what we have in the Ozarks in abundance and the colors are shifting towards the hue and glow of fall.
The Northeast of Arkansas is laden with historic landmarks, such as the Jacob Wulf House in Norfolk nearby. It was the first permanent courthouse for the county and it would be great if the walls could talk. We especially like the simplicity of the rooms and the interior.
Traveling would be dull without having fun, such as being at one of the many Fall Festivals in the area.
We go to the Berry Farm weekly and enjoyed this weekend especially the faces of happy and active kids, hayrides, sunflower fields, and the nicely decorated farm stands. Fall does bring colder nights but also warm colors, or as Jim Bishop puts it: "Autumn carries more gold in its pockets than all the other seasons".
