Devil's Den State Park, Arkansas

On May 1, 2010, a group of Rebel Car Club members went on a road trip. We traveled from northeast Oklahoma to northwest Arkansas. The state park is called Devil's Den. The only thing wicked about it is the winding road. Trailers over twenty-eight feet long are prohibited from entering at one entrance because they can not make the curves! But it is a beautiful State Park and free for picnickers.
Of course, when the Rebels take to the road, we take food and lots of it.
The park rangers were in awe of our vehicles.
Later in the afternoon in the main pavilion, a lady gave a lecture on raptors, birds of prey. She is licensed to keep and rehabilitate these birds. If they can not be rehabilitated so they can hunt well enough to feed and protect themselves, she is licensed to keep them. She had with her a barred owl that she has had for twenty-one years. I had no idea they lived that long! She also had a red-tailed hawk. Beautiful birds!
The weather co-operated nicely. We had a cloudy start to the day but abundant sunshine at the park.
