Tower Road

That's not just any ole dirt road, y'know. That's the road to the tower on Hot Springs mountain in Hot Springs National Park. The benches were the giveaway. Still have 'em today. Good place to sit a spell and catch your breath on the way up. Here's the same road a few years later.

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night?
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, in the pines

Her husband was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night?

In the pines, in the pines.

A gentle trip home

after Ma'am and the Gentleman had taken in the waters.

Not much has changed

This is either one of two hills in Hot Springs. North Mountain or West Mountain both are close to downtown and the Hot Springs National Park. These hairpin curves are the same as they were in this pic except they are now asphalt surfaced and landscaped with proper drainage infrastructure.
