A Room With A View

Our room in the lodge on Mount Magazine had a small balcony that overlooked the Petit Jean River Valley and Blue Mountain Lake.

I took a vast number of photographs, most of which didn’t come out at all the way I wanted them to. It was hazy, and the Ouachita Mountains were too far off for my camera to focus. I tried all sorts of settings and everything else I could think of to capture the feel of the place. I present the best of them here, with the times that I took them. Every photo on this post, except for the one above, was taken from the balcony during the 19 hours we spent at the lodge.

We stuck around until the very last minute we could without getting charged for an additional day and were very reluctant to leave.
