Nothing quite beats discovering an all too familiar place all over again. With a layer of snow, Flatside Pinnacle becomes a totally new experience.
The past few years I’ve taken the opportunity to explore Arkansas while it’s covered with snow. From hiking to the Blue Hole in a foot of it, or driving to Flatside in a dusting, all my experiences have been wonderful. There’s nothing quiet like hiking in the snow. In the spring time the woods are filled with the songs of birds, but in a winter snow the forest is silent.
The silence snow brings is beautiful, but it doesn’t snow quite often enough here in Arkansas. However, this year is shaping up to be a little different. I don’t know what it is, but it feels like we may have the opportunity to experience a white Christmas again. Maybe it’s the snow popping up in the forecasts this early, or perhaps it’s the old farmers tale of spoons in the persimmons. Whatever it may be, here’s to hoping that we can experience a beautiful snowfall this year.
Here’s to hoping for new experiences in all too familiar places.
