After we dug for diamonds, we were supposed to go to Hot Springs, Arkansas to see the national park, see bathouse row and take a nice hot soak. Unfortunately, we received an email from our campground, telling us the that all the federal campgrounds in Hot Springs were closed due to hundreds of down trees.
So, we decided to head west to DeQueen Lake for two days of rest. When we got to our campground in DeQueen, it was closed due to flooding. We had to turn around the RV on a gravel road, using a farmer's muddy driveway. Debbie pulled out our campground directory and found a private campground, Shadow Mountain, 36 miles north in Mena. We set up, went to town and did our laundry and had a delicious mexican dinner at Papa's Mexican restaurant. We expected to be in Mena for just 2 days, but it is still pouring, many roads are flooded and some campgrounds are closed. We are supposed to be in Fort Smith today, (Monday) but we are staying put in Mena until the weather gets better. So, we are paying for a site in each town....the adventure continues.
