Christmas in Arkansas

We spent Christmas in The-Middle-of-Nowhere, Arkansas (really at the Longbow Cabins, outside of Prim, AR). The drive there was nice, and we must have seen thousands of birds flying and hanging out in in fields and water.

We made it to the cabin just before dark and were actually able to see it. It was precious; tiny but just enough space for us. We could hear the constant rush of water from the little waterfall and creek outside. Later we went out on the upstairs deck and looked at the stars - we forget how many there are!

On Christmas Eve I hiked up the creek a little and sat on a giant rock in the middle of it to make this sketch.
