The Big Dam Bridge in Little Rock Arkansas

We left from Bremen, GA on Sunday.  Timing was not the best as it literally poured down rain on us the whole way to Little Rock, AR.  A stressful nine hour drive for Dave, that is for sure.

And it took constant diligence to keep mud from being tracked into the RV every time we stopped for a doggy bathroom break.  I’m learning quickly how to juggle two dogs and an umbrella.  It was a long day.

It was incredibly nice to wake up the next morning to a beautiful spring day in Little Rock!

I had to get some photos of the flowering cherry trees.  Love these, but they only last a week so you have to enjoy them as quickly as you can!

We toured a bit of North Little Rock and ate at a small sandwich and pizza place .  I took a nice photo of Dave.

He reciprocated with a terrible shot of me.

Well naturally.

We discovered the nearby Arkansas River Trail and decided to do a bit of walking.  Well, to be honest, this sign totally caught our eye.  Did you know that they have a Big Dam Bridge in Arkansas?

We love dams.  It gives us an excuse to put the word dam in everything we say.  I imagine the Big Dam Bridge crosses the Big Dam River.  And maybe there is a dam store there that sells dam hotdogs with big dam bags of chips.   Dammit.

The Arkansas River Trail runs through Little Rock and North Little Rock, connecting 38 parks, six museums and 5,000+ acres of federal, state and local parkland. The loop is an impressive 88 miles, runs largely along both sides of the Arkansas River and is nicely paved.

It was quite popular too!  Tons of hikers, cyclists, skaters, joggers were out and about there.  Impressively busy for a Monday afternoon!

Ever the adventurists, we put on our hiking shoes and trekked the 88 miles, checked out the Big Dam Bridge, and had a dam good time.

Well…maybe not the whole 88 miles.  I think we put in a mile and half, but who is counting, right?

  2. We are really enjoying this! We are Canadians who live in New Brunswick (east coast) and are planning a trip across the mid-states starting in August until ?? We are retired also and enjoy the road tremendously. We’ve done all the lower states up to California and also a lot of the Northern states. We’ve also done all of Canada. We both have beautiful countries and wonderful people! Until next time, Safe travels.

      Thanks so much for following along! We hope to show lots of great places for adventures while traveling. We took a trip up to Franklin, NC last summer and really enjoyed the area. Hope to find time to post really soon about that campground and area. Just beautiful country.
