Traveling Them Thar Hills

John James Audobon State Park, Henderson, Kentucky

The state park we stayed in had to have been built and designed for smaller camp trailers and pickup campers from years ago. But we did find a few spots we could barely fit.  The museum about John James Audobon more than made up for the  small site we had. The rest of the park was amazing!  There are 3 galleries showing the amazing life and work this man did with 100’s of artifacts and original works on display from 1820 to 1819 about American birds.  Below are some pictures and what I thought was interesting facts I didn’t know. Standing in front of and looking at these originals can’t be captured on photographs. There’s nothing like inperson. 

At the small lake in the park. Another first for me.

Maumelle Park/Arkansas River. Little Rock

This is another fantastic park by the Army Corp of Engineers. It’s right on the Arkansas River and we were lucky to get a spot right on the river. 

We made a day trip to Hot Springs to check out this old town with so much history.  On top of the tower above the city gives a great view of the hotels and old bathhouses. 

Here are a few pictures from inside the Fordyce Bathouse

We finished off the day trip with a beer at the only Brewery in a national park.
