Louisiana Purchase State Park

Date: April 10, 2015
Location: south of Brinckley, Arkansas


Louisiana Purchase State Park is a small state park that marks the point where land surveys began following the 1803 Louisiana Purchase. Today the area is a headwater swamp, and the only facilities consist of a 950-foot boardwalk with interpretive signs that leads to a granite marker that was placed at the starting point of the surveys in 1926. There was no one else there when I stopped, and it was very buggy, although none of the flies were biting me.

I briefly stopped in the Ouachita Mountains of Ouachita National Forest in western Arkansas on the morning of April 10, 2015. I stopped at and around the Albert Pike Recreation Area (the site of a 2010 flash flood that killed 20 people). The scenery was great, so here's a few photos.
