BOOM!

We started the day with a visit to the Arkansas Post National Memorial (think mini national historic site), very interesting and they even had a nice walking trail with historic markers. Weather was ok - cloudy mid 60s. Our plans to stop by the StarDaze Festival in Star City got rained out and we are now in Pine Bluff.

Just a little history before you watch my short video. The Arkansas Post (trading post) the first European settlement in the lower Mississippi River Valley and present-day Arkansas was established in 1686 as a French trading post on banks of the lower Arkansas River. In 1804 Arkansas Post became a part of the United States as a result of the Louisiana Purchase from France.
