Red Headed Woodpeckers seemed
to be everywhere in the park!
Friday, our plan was to go to the Arkansas Post
National Monument close by. On the way there we
saw and stopped at the Arkansas Post Museum
State Park to check it out. They were having a
demonstration day and so we made a little butter
and threw an atlatl!
Then on to the monument for some Arkansas history, a small hike and bald eagles and alligators!
Then, as it is now a much longer day...., we drove to the site of the Rohwer Japanese American
Relocation Center which we heard about at the state park! Whew! Just another great day!
Inside the 1886 log house, the pioneer woman had a butter churn but she just gave us a small container with some whipping cream in it to shake like crazy.
Local girl scout troop 1167 joined us and we all shook till we thought our arms were going to drop off....then we had a nice little pat of butter to put on a cracker!
