Here are a few photos that I took on the Talimena Scenic Drive near Mena. Excellent for riding motorcycles.

Slingshot, those a gorgeous, the colors are remarkably vivid. Can I ask, what type of camera do you use?

I used a Kodak Z740. But I have to admit to a little editing on Flickr. But only a little. Fall is a beautiful time of year around Mena. Thanks for the nice reply.

The saturation is a bit high in that first one, so much it hurt my eyes. But I know where you were going in boosting the colors, which is a process I have done to more than my fair share of photos and am fond of. The rest, I love. Any idea of the exact date on which these were taken? This past Fall I missed the peak of the colors by a few days, so when I arrived in Arkansas, everything was turning brown already.

I should have posted where they are.
Pictures 1 & 2 Little Missouri Falls near Albert Pike Recreation Area.
#3 Is Twin Falls (I Think) Near Jasper AR. It is in the Tim Ernst Book.
#4 Lost Valley Near Ponca AR. Very Pretty Area.
#5 Hawksbill Crag Near Boxley Valley AR.
#6 Glory Hole Between Fallsville and Edwards Junction on Hwy 16/21
These are a few of the many scenic places we have visited while Geocaching.
