This lovely picnic area was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
The view in Winter is amazing! Have you heard the old saying, "Can't see the forest for the trees".
Well, that's a good reason to hike in Winter! ;-) This view is still gorgeous when the leaves are on the trees, but, my goodness, look at those Ozark Mountains in early February!
The CCC did amazing rock work, didn't they?
While it's a pretty rough climb down to this little picnic spot
it's certainly worth the time to visit and pause for just a moment
before heading on down the road.
Gray's Spring is located on White Rock Mountain Road off Arkansas Scenic Highway 23, AKA The Pig Trail.
The scenery is so beautiful! Thanks for sharing. :-)ReplyDelete

Great when there is a big difference between the seasons a lot of our trees are evergreen and things don't change all that much.ReplyDelete
So pretty! I was always amazed at the work the CCC did in Montana in such hard to reach places!ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous little structure! I've always loved the things that the CCC built back in the '30s.ReplyDelete
This screams "peacefulness" to me! Linking up from Dare to Share SaturdayReplyDelete
We have a similar structure at Deception Pass park in Washington State. - MargyReplyDelete
