Travel Theme: Mountains

White Rock Mountain, in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas

White Rock Mountain, in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas

White Rock Mountain is one of my favorite mountains because it is beautiful in every season and especially friendly during winter.  The Ozark Highlands Trail passes across White Rock at about mile 18.  I like traveling to White Rock because the trailhead is only 45-minutes from home which means more time on the trail and less time in the Jeep.

Camping on White Rock is a treat.

This picture of the morning after the previous picture demonstrates just how quickly conditions can change on this relatively low elevation mountain (2,320 feet).

There are overlooks for viewing sunset and sunrise on a 2-mile loop trail on top of White Rock Mountain.
