Exploring Arkansas March 2018
The Castle on Stagecoach in Little Rock is actually a fairy tale event center, making children's fairy tale dreams come true, complete with horse and carriage rides. The crag in Jamestown near Batesville is a rock climber's paradise with many different routes up the crag for different skills. The Arkansas State University Museum in Jonesboro is definitely more than meets the eye, with artifacts from pre-historic Native Americans, exhibits depicting the state's natural history and cultural heritage; plus a replica of a Mastodon skeleton. The oldest continuous existing town in Arkansas happens to be Batesville. The historic downtown district and the historic home district are the two main attractions.
Peaceful Waters - White River near Goshen, AR
The source of the White River is in the Boston Mountains of northwest Arkansas, in the Ozark–St. Francis National Forest southeast of Fayetteville. The river flows northwards from its source in northwest Arkansas, loops up through southwest Missouri through Branson, Missouri. In Branson the river is actually Lake Taneycomo since it is held back by the Powersite Dam. The Powersite was the first dam on the White River. The flow into this comes from Table Rock Lake and down stream flows into Bull Shoals Lake where it travels back into Arkansas, and then heads generally southeast to its mouth at the Mississippi River.
On entering the Mississippi River Delta region near Batesville, Arkansas, the river becomes navigable to shallow-draft vessels, and its speed decreases considerably. The final 10 miles (16 km) of the river serves as the last segment of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System; this part of the channel is deeper than the rest of the river.
Despite being much shorter than the Arkansas River, it carries nearly as much water—normally more than 20,000 cubic feet per second (570 m3/s), and occasionally more than 100,000 cubic feet per second (2,800 m3/s) during floods.
