Last Sunday, Connie, my father and I drove from Jonesboro up into the Arkansas Ozarks to Mammoth Spring State Park. Mammoth Spring is located a hundred yards or so south of the Arkansas/Missouri line and is aptly named, with a flow of 9 million gallons an hour. It is the source of Spring River that flows south deeper into Arkansas. The bone-chilling water provides a great trout fishery. I've been fishing up there with my family since I was about four years old.
We were lucky enough to see a fairly large flock of wood ducks paddling around in the spring, a species I don't see much in Colorado. I got a picture of what Connie referred to as a "flotilla of drakes."
