First we headed west on Highway 10 to Peron and headed up the mountain to Petit Jean State Park. We've already been there several times so it was a quick stop to grab the cache.
Next up was Mount Nebo State Park. After a brief stop at the visitor center to refill water, use the restrooms, and pickup an ice cream treat (thanks Opa) we headed to the trailhead for the Bench Trail. We quickly picked up the cache and headed on 'round the mountain. We had hopes of scenic views as we traversed the 4 mile trail but opportunities were far and few between. They became more numerous once we got back on the North side of the mountain.
We had to cut our trip short, not making it back to our cars to make it to Lake Dardanelle State Park before the visitor center closed. Since we want to do more than just "grab the cache" we'll stop back by next time we're passing by (probably Thanksgiving).
So that gets us to 8 of 52.
