No Rain just great riding on Day #2.
After the weather we had on the previous day, the sun was greeted with many smiles. I had planned a 250 Mile day of great arkansas roads and lunch at Mt Nebo. This was not on the original plan, but Paul mentioned it and we are so glad that he did. It was a fabulous day.
Day break at camp.. wow the sun does shine in Arkansas..
We all met up at the lodge and had breakfast before heading down the beautiful 14 miles of twisty road to Mena fo gas. After that we had a last minute “Ride your own ride” pep talk and off we went.
getting gas for the days ride ahead. I think one of the best things about these trips is the friendships built while on them. We all had a great time and I think some friendships were made. We stopped at a small town subway and got lunch before heading up to Mt Nebo. The road up there is some of the most technical riding that I have ever done. Deals gap had nothing on these switchbacks. We all made it safe and sound and the view was awesome. Again thanks to Paul for sharing this little spot with us.
Mt Nebo was beautiful. If they would not have put a nuclear power plant down in the valley the view would have been breath taking.
We rode up about a mile further to see the other side of the valley. We came across a nice lady that took a group photo. She must have taken 8 pictures as we all wanted her to take one. She was very nice and not too bad to look at either.
Here are a couple of pictures of the wonderful roads, as we headed back to camp. It was a warm ride back to camp, but not all bad.
