Spring in Arkansas

It's been a crazy Spring in Arkansas - tornados and flooding - seems like we'll never finish cleaning up all the trees!  We've been able to do some hiking, though, and all the water makes for some pretty creeks, so can't complain too much.

Sweetie found this Mama turtle laying her eggs on Mother's Day!  She digs a hole in the soft mud, lowers her heinie down into it, lays her eggs, and buh-bye - she's gone.  Now we'll be looking for the little baby turtles.  Sweetie is always finding cool stuff like this.  I call him a critter.

This next picture is near our house in the country.  I know the power lines aren't very pretty, but the picture really shows the topography of the area.

And lastly, another creek picture.  I like this creek, because the rock is so straight, it looks like it is manmade.
