I keep readin' in the news about folks using a "straw man" for stuff.

Ain't never seen that neither.
Well, I guess that was an assumption on my part, since my wife frequently tells me I have a rock head

Hope you all enjoy some pictures from places the typical City Dweller that will never see if your own backyard.
These are beautiful. I especially love photos of old bridges and other structures.

I spent about five hours walking around and took a few hundred pictures on Wednesday while the snow was falling in Little Rock, and I thought I'd offer to share some of the better ones with you all. If you want to see a rare view of Little Rock covered in several inches of snow, sit back and kill a couple minutes watching the slide show. You'll have to click the "slow" speed if you want to read all the captions with the pictures.

The photos are a mix with a few from my cell phone and most from a Canon point and shoot digital camera. As a result, the quality is not gallery-level, but I hope you enjoy them.

I found out today my apartment is within easy walking distance of Downtown Fort Smith.

I had my camera out and here comes a hearse hauling a horse statue flying by. It's not the best picture but I only had a few seconds before it was gone.



Check out this abandoned building. Must have been nice at some point in history. I don't know if those downed power lines are live of not.



Looks like there where a couple apartments under the building. I'm guessing this one is from the KISS era.

Would be a nice place if someone could spare a million or so to restore it. It actually doesn't look too bad from the front.

Farther up the alley.
Even the graffiti looks faded and worn.

As a human I wouldn't particularly want to inhabit those last two places.

Went for a ride with the wife and kids yesterday.
One of my favorites.
Springfield Bridge, it gets worse every year. I wish there was a way to renovate it for the next generation. Built 1876


This ancient Cypress use to be the anchor point for the bridge.

You would be surprised how many rural roads lack bridges.

This old Church and School is by Cleveland, most likely Methodist denomination. There was a calender on the wall from 1991. So its been empty for a bit.

The back door was open so I snapped a couple quick pictures inside.

Awesome view from the front Yard.

Meanwhile down the road a bit is Cow Ford,

And a local swimming hole complete with a rope swing.
That water is still quite cold.

White Oak overlook by Hector.

A little Waterfall on Dare Creek. You can only get this picture from the road. Private land all around.

Next we dropped Southwest to Mt Magazine and took a lowly dirt road that could have been on the set of Deliverance, I was listening for Banjos the whole time. We came out on the south side of Mt Magazine.



Looking off the north side of Mt Magazine.


then we ran an hours worth of dirt roads to get back over to Dardanelle, decided to go visit Petit Jean Mt and a friend that lives up there on top.




About the old soul we went to visit.....

Should've seen my youngest eyes light up when he walked out of the house.

That's a nice bunch of pictures, I had to chuckle at a couple of things.

First, the comment on how many roads don't have bridges.

They do have bridges, you're on it. It's called a "low water bridge", and in some places (like where I live), if you want to go *anywhere*, you're going to cross at least one of them. Locals know which ones to avoid after a large rainfall.

Second, the comparison to "Deliverance".

Heh, there are places around here that the boys from Deliverance wouldn't even tread, but you didn't go through any of them.

If you ever find yourself really drunk, or really crazy, I'll guide ya to a few.
