Weekend in the Boston Mountains: Part 3

Weekend in the Boston Mountains: Part 3

On our last day of our weekend getaway, we crammed in a lot of stuff!
We started with breakfast at the cabin- she made breakfast casserole and AMAZING cinnamon rolls. Yum!
After breakfast, we headed back to Lake Fort Smith to do some hiking.  We stopped by the visitor center to get a map and decided to do the Ozark Highlands Trail (OHT).  This is actually a 160+ mile trail that has its western terminus at Lake Fort Smith.  We didn’t do 160 miles, but we did go about 1.25 miles into it, and then came back.
The trail was cleared off nicely.  Very easy to walk.  It did have some inclines up and down hills, but the brush was cleared off the path well.
About 45 minutes in, we heard a branch crack….and we got quiet to look through the woods.
We finally spotted this little baby deer!  This fawn was being so still and let us get so close to it!
He finally bounded off into the woods and we kept walking.  About 100 yards up, we spotted another fawn!  This was one was a bit bigger.
Tyler got really close to it before it hopped off.
After our hike, we went back to the cabin to shower and pack up.  Then Tyler took me to the Jones Center in Springdale.  A Youtube Zumba instructor that I like – he is called the Wild Shaker!- was in town for a masterclass. I met up with 4 friends and we took the class together.
It was a fun but VERY TIRING class. He was super high energy the whole time.
After the class, we all went to Noodles for dinner, where we consumed our weight in bread and pasta after feeling like we burned 1000000 calories at that master class!
We made it home around 7 Sunday night.
We crammed so much into the weekend that it felt like we were gone for a week!  But, even though we did a lot of stuff, we still felt relaxed and renewed. It was a great weekend!
