Exploring Arkansas October 2010
Turpentine Creek Big Cat Refuge, Pond Cr National Wildlife Reserve, Kingfisher & Arkansas Arboretum Trails, DeGray Lake Sunset Kayaking
The largest big cat refuge in the world happens to be near Eureka Springs-which rescues distressed big cats throughout the U.S. Great Egrets and gators are some of the wildlife you can see at Pond Creek National Wildlife Refuge northwest of Texarkana. Two lesser known trails at Pinnacle Mountain State Park offer unique opportunities-along the Kingfisher Trail you hike amongst giants-huge 600 year old cypress trees. A perfect ending to a summer evening is kayaking at sunset on DeGray Lake near Arkadelphia.
