Got up Sat morning and started wondering. I had heard of a road call Push Mt Road (AR 341) running from just west of Fifty-Six Ar, north to Norfolk Ar. Turned out to be a very nice ride.

341 is a best-kept secret in these parts.  It's not the best long curvy road, but it's a lot of fun.  You were close to us when you came thru on 62, assuming you went thru Yellville and Flippin.
Good decision on not staying overnight in Flippin.  Not many places to eat an even fewer to spend the night at.  Mt. View is a good time, but if you like to have a sip at night, better bring your own in with you.  It's a long drive to the nearest liquor store.  Like around 50 minutes round trip!
Thanks for taking us along for the ride, brother!

We enjoy just throwing something easy on the grill, kicking back and relaxing. Typically we can find some kind of smoked sausage, or hot link that fits perfectly

I can see us spending a lot more time in that area, lots of roads to nowhere, and when you get to nowhere, you make the decision of left or right.... we decided long ago that you are only lost if your worried about where your at.

We found a campground there in Cotter a few years back that we really enjoy, sits right on the river and first time there we set out tent up under what we thought was an abandon train track, till the train came. I need to find that pic.

Harry you live in a beautiful area

After we moved here, we developed a saying whenever someone would ask us where we were going:  "wherever the bike takes us".
Cotter is a cool old town, and the White River is just about clear enough to drink from there.  And c-c-cold!
It is a beautiful area, and we're blessed!
Holler at me next time, we'll hook up if we can!

Harry your comment caused me to laugh at our first trip to Cotter. We camped under what we thought was an abandoned rail track.

There was a noise coming from our abandoned track late that afternoon.

Dave,
That's funny.  Yes, those tracks are still used.  Were you aware that just northwest of where you were camping and across the White River, is a 1,000 foot long tunnel where the train goes under Hwy 62?  It's a pretty famous tunnel and much wrote about.

Check it out!
