Hi @REI-JenK ,

I have TONS of great Arkansas photos! To start, this one is at Rattlesnake Ridge which is a nature conservancy property that is great for mountain biking, trail running, and hiking. It's located in central Arkansas, right outside of Little Rock.Rattlesnake Ridge, central ARRattlesnake Ridge, central AR

Here's some more photos. These are on the Buckeye Trail in the Ouachita National Forest in western Arkansas. This is one of my favorite places to hike.Ouachita Mountains in FallOuachita Mountains in FallView from the Buckeye TrailView from the Buckeye TrailFall on the Buckeye TrailFall on the Buckeye Trail

Here are some photos from the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail (fondly termed LOViT).

Because Arkansas is so much more than just mountains, here's some photos of the bayou that characterizes the Lower Mississippi River Valley.Aberdeen Angus (dog) takes in the beautiful views of the bayou in central ARAberdeen Angus (dog) takes in the beautiful views of the bayou in central ARPlacid fall afternoon on the Arkansas bayouPlacid fall afternoon on the Arkansas bayou

@NatStateExp this is EXACTLY what we were hoping for - thank you SO much! These are beautiful! If you had to pick your favorite, which would it be?

@REI-JenK  No problem! I think the photo of the Rattlesnake Ridge is my favorite because this location is so close to the city, and it was such a great day for weather when I took this photo. Also, this was right when I moved to Arkansas so I felt like I was uncovering a hidden treasure when I found this spot.

@NatStateExp love it! Don't be surprised to see it featured above in the next few days! Thanks so much for helping us kick off this new board!
