Mount Nebo

With a State Park at its top, Mount Nebo overlooks Russellville and Lake Dardenelle and appears to be a very popular place.  There used to be hotels, bowling alleys, stables, and all kinds of other stuff.  Now there’s just a visitor center, picnic areas, camp grounds, swimming pool, and many private  homes/cabins.  There are trails too, but I passed them by this time.

The road to the top (AR 155) is a fun one and has taken the crown for the twistiest-and-turniest away from AR 123 south of Mt Judea.  I lost count of the number of switchbacks.

Arkansas has these elaborately-painted bas relief signs for each park.  Very cool!

Looking east, I think, from Sunrise Point.  The city of Dardanelle should be somewhere in the center with Russellville to the left.

Looking southwest from Sunset Point.  I think that's Mt Magazine on the horizon at left.
