Last Friday we spent the day with another couple at Mt. Magazine State Park. The park features the highest point in Arkansas.

I'm horrible with remembering names of things like plant life but that flower is beautiful; and so are all the other pictures. Do you know what kind of flower that is?

Honestly, no toes stepped on, I'm just pleased Brian and yourself now know the correct identity of the plant, plus I get to learn... so all is good Smile
