This is the first of a planned set of photos taken during a recent trip to Arkansas.

We discovered the Elk Falls bridge and waterfall 19 years ago during our last trip to Arkansas.

It’s been a while, but we found ourselves in the area a couple of days ago, and of course I took some pictures. It’s a very pretty location, with a rustic old pedestrian-only bridge and a nice, broad waterfall. Very photogenic!

Later in the day we drove by Big Brutus, the largest electric coal shovel in the world!
