Nestled Between Two Mountains

That would be Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  I had never been there — even though it is only 5.5 hours away.  My mother wanted to go on a weekend trip and since I knew she had been there before and loved it, I suggested it.  We left early Friday morning and returned on Sunday. It is an interesting community — it has an historic downtown area with lots of Victorian gingerbread homes of which most are B&Bs.  We stayed in one and it was lovely.  Gardens everywhere!  And the houses may look as though they are ground level, but a closer look lets you know that you are in fact looking at the third floor because the house is built down next to a rock cliff.  Hilly steep streets, moss and plants and trees everywhere.  Forest all around. Here are some photos of the historic area.
