This past week has been full and absolutely wonderful! I met my grandson for his field trip at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Arkansas and I took a road trip with my parents and sister to see the fall foliage. I took the list of prompts from Scavenger Hunt Sunday with me on my trips and had such fun searching for items!
Our prompts this week were:
As I traveled to the folk center to meet my daughter and grandson for his field trip, I came upon these wild turkeys strolling down the highway. Since there was no one but me on the road, I stopped and took a picture through the front windshield. These guys would not move off the road! They just looked at me an gobbled rather loudly!! I think I was interfering with their morning walk!
This group of musicians played to welcome us to the Folk Center village. The village takes you back in time with it's music and it's demonstrations of pioneer skills and crafts.
These are the classic tools of the woodcarver who demonstrated his craft for us.
On my way home from the field trip I went on another adventure. I went searching for this one room schoolhouse/chapel. What an adventure that was! The road to the schoolhouse is small and not shown on an Arkansas map, so I used MapQuest and it gave very bad directions! It sent me about 27 miles down a gravel road, when in reality I could have gone on a different highway and only driven 3 miles on the gravel road! I was able to see more of the countryside since I had to drive so slow! I did eventually find the schoolhouse. I just wasn't expecting it to be in the middle of a cow pasture!! Can you see the white cows on the right behind the church? I had to step around cow patties to take pictures!!
On the road trip I took with my family we stopped at an overlook in the Ozark Mountains. The picture just does not do justice to the vibrant fall colors!!
I am certainly enjoying this beautiful fall! After the drought this summer I wasn't expecting it to be very pretty, but much needed rain and cooler nights brought gorgeous colors!
