Click here for Part I.
Our arrival at Hot Springs National Park culminated with a beautiful sunset. So I decided to tempt fate the next morning and see if we could catch an equally beautiful sunrise.
Taryn and I got into the park before 6 a.m. to hike to Goat Rock. The skies looked promising en route, with a crescent moon peeking through the trees along the trail.
Gulpha Creek like I had right after sunrise.
pretzel bites on a restaurant menu for me -- pretty much irresistible.
So we were 2 for 2 on sunrises and sunsets to start the trip. I promised Taryn that with that sort of success, I wouldn't make her get up that early again over the next few days. Seemed like a fair deal for a 12-year-old girl who agreed to spend half her spring break driving around Arkansas and Oklahoma with her dad. :)
