Outdoor Arkansas Photo Essay
The Buffalo River in the Ozark region of northwestern Arkansas has been designated a National Scenic River (and for good reason!)
My husband and I had canoed here many years ago and couldn't wait to share the experience with our sons. We rented canoes from a local outfitter. This was also our boys' first time canoe camping.
We made lots of stops along the river on some of its many sand bars to picnic and admire the towering cliffs.
Whenever we got hot or tired from paddling, we just pulled the canoes onto land and swam in the cool, clear water.
