Our Christmas tree.
Larry doing house-work.
Reminds me of home, painting in the living room.
The great painting by Deb Pero.
Hot Springs, AS
Lunch at the park.
The spring IS hot!
Larry is trying to warm up.
Up, to discover the trail system right in town.
Trails to the top and observation tower.
Yes, we walked up. All I could think about - would be fantastic for repeats in training!
The views - Hot Springs was one of the first National Parks.
A real natural spring water, and this one is not hot.
More of park's exploration.
"Bath Houses Row"
We took a bath in one of those. Why not? It's an experience!
A snowy frosty trees in the mountains.
Isn't it worth being a morning before Christmas?!
Just imagine what it looks like in fall colors when the leaves are changing...or in the spring when the green is budding.
Hills as far as you can see them!
Lots of pine trees too!
The cliffs are surprisingly high and abrupt.
Is it Brazil? Or Eureka Spring?
Views from Crescent Hotel, 1886
This was one crooked staircase, all 125 years of it!
The streets were up and down, providing for a great evening walk (too bad all local businesses were closed for Christmas eve) - and even better morning run. Every house seemed to have a history behind, built in 19th century and looking adorable.
Springs in Eureka Spring weren't hot, but were still many.
Yep, this is how the elevation changed in a few steps.
Crescent Hotel at night.
Sunrise from historic hotel of Eureka Springs.
Ozark Highland Trail
Our only hike that lasted long enough to call it "hike/run".
Highest point of AS, Mt. Magazine.
Sunset on the way home...
