More Reasons I LOVE Mt. Nebo, Arkansas

On March 5th after returning from our wonderful trip to 'our' mountain cabin in Mt. Nebo, Arkansas,  I listed some of the many things I love about being there.  IF you missed that post,  click HERE.   Today,  I'll share some more things I (we) love about being at Mt. Nebo.   On the March 5th post,  I showed you the sunrise...  The picture above is a SUNSET picture... We took this picture from our back porch at the cabin... Isn't it marvelous?  Be sure to click on the pictures to see them larger.




Since we love waterfalls so much,  I must show you the MT. NEBO WATERFALL...  Arkansas was pretty dry this year (compared to other years when we go) but there was a little water coming over the falls this year. 




Our BRADFORD PEAR trees are finally blooming here NOW---but when we were in Arkansas two weeks ago,  theirs were already blooming.   SO much beauty in the spring--even if it is an early spring.




Sitting on the back porch at the cabin,  we can enjoy not only the day views of the valley below --but also the NIGHT VIEWS.




I love hiking on the Rim Trail at Mt. Nebo and coming across a big patch of beautiful DAFFODILS in bloom. 




If you love the sunrises and sunsets like we do,  then I'm sure you would also love seeing the MOON and STARS from Mt. Nebo.... Nice, huh?




Here's another daytime shot of Mt. Nebo ---looking toward the valley below, but including some of the pine trees and clouds... Nice picture,  don't you think?




Finally,  here is another picture of George and me ---sitting on our back patio,  with a view of the valley below.   This is really a fantastic place....  Wish I were there RIGHT NOW....

Hope you have a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

The water coming over the falls, looks like a light, gauzy bridal veil.

You take such beautiful pictures. But then again what is not beautiful about Mt. Nebo!

Arkansas Patti said...

I was surprised to see all the lights below you at night. I thought it was a more remote place.
It is definitely in my bucket list now.
Hope you two are all better now.

Love your pictures Betsy. Spring has definitely arrived in your area.:)

Lady Di Tn said...

Beautiful photos of a beautiful place. It looks like a little bit of Heaven in Arkansas. The pear trees in Nashville have been taking turns blooming around town. They look like cotton candy when in full bloom. Peace

Glenda said...

Your variety of scenic beauty makes this post so interesting! What a beautiful place! I love the view of the moon and stars through the trees.

Chatty Crone said...

I love all your pictures - but I think this time I really like the header - with the sun setting! So pretty. Love, sandie

laveta'splace said...

Love those misty falls and the daffodils in the wilds.
I was going to say that you should come back for a visit to Colorado; but I don't think we are as beautiful as where you are. (Don't tell anybody from Colorado I said that)!!

Thoughtfully Blended Hearts said...

Wow...gorgeous...but I'll bet all that pollen gotcha!!! So happy you two had such a great trip!!!

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Oh my- I am going to have to visit this place! I love that waterfall and the views from the cabin look fantastic!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Betsy, Lovely vistas and I sure do like the last photo of you both sitting happy and beaming! Have a super good day tomorrow. I hope it rains. I had to use the hose to water the little fruit trees and grapes I just planted this past few days at the farm here.

Nava said...

Enjoyed the hike with you--however I am not sure it counted as my exercise for the day. The photos are crisp and clear.

From the Kitchen said...

I love the thin veil of water coming over the waterfall. There's beauty in dryness it seems! Our temperature was 85 degrees today!! Unbelievable since, sometimes in March we have our heaviest snows. I won't become complacent because it could still happen. In the meantime, we're sleeping with the windows open tonight.

Best,
Bonnie

carolina nana said...

That is truly a beautiful place. That sunset pic is breathtaking.
Hope you all are feeling better.
Blessings

Carletta said...

That sunset is gorgeous and even just a veil of a waterfall is lovely!
Looks like you and George had another wonderful getaway. :)

Beth said...

I esp. love that photo overlooking the lights below. The trees near where you stood look like they are etched into the picture--lovely effect.:>)
No wonder you love this place so much---there ia an abundance to love!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

The water is quite beautiful over the falls - even if it isn't as lush as in some years :-)

Small City Scenes said...

Oh wow, Betsy, that is a glorious place. I love all the pictures but that sunset you opened with is special. You are lucky to live in a beautiful area and to get to go and see all the great sights.

More delightful photos today. M favourites are the waterfall, pear blossom and of course the daffodils.

Dar said...

Hi Betsy and George,
Now, I'll bet you thought I forgot you, never happen. I have a nasty cold along with you, hating it.
The Mt. are wonderful. I love the waterfall looking like a child's fine hair. You two are so happy and looking pretty darned cute.
Have a wonderful spring and stay healthy. I'll check in more often when I can.

ladyfi said...

Wow - what amazing shots!

Beth said...

Wonderful shots, Betsy. We are definitely putting Mt. Nebo on our list of Places to Visit Someday. I really want to stay in the same cabin you and George had. It always looks like you have privacy there even with other cabins nearby. Such a beautiful place---even at night!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Betsy, Keep an eye on the weather tonight. Lots of thunder here in the Tansi neighborhoods at the moment (5:16pm). Have a wonderful day tomorrow!

Karin said...

Now you've got me singing - Sunrise - Sunset, lol!! Such a relaxing, beautiful spot. Thanks for sharing it with us through all these great photos!

Retired English Teacher said...

This place is really beautiful. I had no idea. I'd like to go there sometime.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Mt. Nebo definitely looks like a wonderful spot to vacation in. Will be jotting this name down on my "places to go" list for future travels! Love your photos, Betsy, beautiful as always!
Enjoy your weekend!

mudderbear said...

I wish I was there, too, Betsy. Arkansas has become one of my favorite places. I don't suppose we'll ever get back there again, but I really miss it.

Kirigalpoththa said...

Perfect set of photos.

joy said...

Oh what a lovely pictures of God's creation and a very lovely couple. I wish that my husband and me will be as sweet as your are too when we retired. Looking forward for more post from you. I am now a follower:)
