A weekend in Madison County

Originally, we had planned to go to Madison County, Iowa to check out the covered bridges but with all the flooding, we decided to head south to Eureka Springs.

We really did end up in Madison County - ARKANSAS and had such a great time touring the country roads -
I always enjoy the scenery and try to get shots as we are touring along.

We ran into some pretty intense storms on our way down, but when we hit the Arkansas border, it was smooth sailing for most of the weekend.

Somehow, I managed to get a shot of us in the mirror - eeek, what a sight!
This was some little spot we stopped at and it was so pretty with the stream.

Our cabin was secluded and quaint - little did I know, the owners feed the deer on a daily basis.
I didn't know that and as I was walking up for some supplies, ran into 2 deer - there was a 3rd that wanted to play a game of peek-a-boo and who can say No to that sweet face?

On our way out of town this morning, it looked like we were heading into some serious storms and we got hit with about 7 raindrops, but all of us were praying and God heard our pleas, because the sun popped out and it was sunshine all the way home!

Oh what a great surprise to see all your beautiful pics this morning! Loved the one you took in the rearview and of course all the scenery, especially the old house with the folige all grown up in it we have so many old houses like that in VA. I just want to explore all day long.

Take care,
