Saturday night

Met up with Zack on Saturday, and we drove south to visit a spot in the Flatside Wilderness. The hope was that we would catch a decent sunset over the Ouachitas, and he had an idea for a spot. We weren't going to Flatside Pinnacle, the usual spot to go in the area. But instead we stopped along the Winona Scenic Drive near another mountain, that had some good views.

It wasn't that long of a hike to get there, but it was steep. There was no trail, and there was a considerable amount of rocks and trees and thorns to pass by first. I was out of breath, but did enjoy the view.

The sunset was nice...

But as soon as the sun set, the temperature seemed to drop about 20 degrees. It was getting quite cold by the time we got back to Zack's Jeep. After driving back north towards Conway, we stopped to get a few shots. One of the stops was at the old St. Boniface Church, which is about 20 miles south of Conway. This is a neat old church, built back in 1906. It was cold, about 32 degrees, so we didn't linger too long to take pictures. But I was amazed by how clear the sky was, and how many stars you could see there...
