Petit Jean State Park

I recently attended my brother's wedding in Little Rock, Arkansas. I'm pretty much in love with the great outdoors, so my brother and I and some of his friends took a trip to Petit Jean State Park, about 30 miles east of Arkansas, a couple of days before his big day. It was cool just sitting back with my brother, drinking some beers, and walking all around his scenic place. The hiking was great, albeit difficult.

    Good start! I don't know why but I figured that Arkansas was dry and desolate and I am surprised it is green and full of water flowing!

    I've heard of Petit Jean State Park before, but never knew how it got its name. Thanks for telling the story. Looking forward to more of your pages here on VirtualTourist!

    I enjoyed reading about the park. Walking three miles on a sprained ankle would be a challenge.

    Chris, I think Petit Jean State Park is one of America's best hidden secrets. I visited the park a while back and fell in love with the whole area. I'm actually thinking about relocating to the Little Rock area.

    Very good start with nice photos of the mountain, Chris. I wish I will visit this part of United states one day!
