The above photos were taken from above and below of the same location at Cedar Falls in Petit Jean State Park at different times of the year. The photo on the left is late November and the fall color is still hanging on since this years freeze is late. The photo on the right was taken late spring of this year and the water fall is active from the spring rains. The sun is out as well and the rock colors are different as the sun really warms the color of the rock. The photo on the left was taken yesterday and it was very overcast and misting rain. This is a "hollar" as the locals call it. The trail head to the falls is a 1.1 mile moderate trail and very scenic along the way especially when the water is running making for lots of great photos. The photo on the right has a couple sitting behind the falls.
This photo is taken a couple of miles west of the falls and this is where the canyon walls open to the valley where Dardanelle is located NW @ 15 miles. Love the colors as the mix of evergreens and rust colors wash the canyon walls.
