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,

What I LOVE about Mt. Nebo, Arkansas

Many of you know that George and I spent last week in gorgeous ARKANSAS...  We have a special place which we visit one or more times each year---and since we keep going back,  we feel as if this little cabin on top of the mountain (Mt. Nebo State Park, Arkansas) is all OURS.... And it IS ---for a week!!!!!

This little romantic one-bedroom cabin is PERFECT for us.  We have a great view from our cabin of the Arkansas Valley below.  AND--we can sit on our back porch/patio and see the sunset...   Today I will share with you just a few of the things I love about being at Mt. Nebo.  Above is a picture of our wonderful cabin in a perfect location.  Be sure and click on the pictures in order to see them larger.




George took this picture of me drinking some coffee,  sitting by the fireplace,  and working on Facebook of course!!!!!! ha.....  Can you tell that LIFE is GOOD!!!!




Of course I took some birdseed with me  (why not??? ha)---so that I could feed the little birds at Mt. Nebo... As much as I love the birds,  I think they were waiting on me to visit.. Besides the Cardinals,  I saw lots of Nuthatches and Juncos---and also many other small songbirds.   They bring me SO much JOY.




The state park is filled with hiking trails and many different types of wildlife... The deer roam freely --and don't seem to be too afraid of us humans.  We enjoy watching them near our cabin --especially early in the mornings and late in the afternoons.




There is a Sunrise Point  and a Sunset Point on top of the mountain at Mt. Nebo.  During this time of year,  we can see the sunset from our back porch --but we do have to drive a short distance to Sunrise Point in order to see the sunrise.  This picture above of one of the SUNRISES was taken on our last morning in Arkansas.  There had been storms around ---which made for some beautiful sunrise pictures.  I don't like getting up at 6 a.m. most mornings--but I was so glad to see this gorgeous sunrise.   It just took my breath away.  How can anyone see something like this and not know that there is a God?




Finally,  here is a picture of the two lovers ---sitting on our back patio at Mt. Nebo...  Isn't that a beautiful view behind us?  Can you see why we LOVE this place so much????

I have many more Mt. Nebo pictures to share --but that will have to be on another blog or two...  Hope you had a great week also... I cannot thank you enough for continuing to come to my blog even when I am not commenting on yours.  That means so much to me.  I have alot of catching up to do --- so bear with me as I try to 'get back in the groove'....

Hugs,
Betsy
