The last guest post from my dad on our last day/hike of the trip:

Our fourth high point in as many days was Mount Magazine in Arkansas.  Once again we were blessed with a beautiful day.  Starting in Harrison, we drove south through the Ozarks, seeing many cows, dilapidated houses and barns, and even a few elk!  We took a side trip to Alum Creek to hike down to the natural stone arch, which was very interesting.  On Mount Magazine, the hike was relatively brief to Signal Hill, the top of Arkansas.  There were no other humans in sight.  Wildlife included only insects.  We had heard about the Lodge and their good hamburgers, but even the good reviews did not prepare us for just how nice it was!  We then took a side trip down to the “edge of the ledge,” where dead and half-dead trees overlook a spectacular drop-off to the valley far below.  Mount Magazine marks my 33rd high point- 32 for Zach.  For now, our next will have to wait.  It was a great trip, spending lots of time with my son doing something that we both love!
