Fort Rock Trip

The first stop we made was at Buc-ees! That place is awesome.

Seven hours later we made it to Arkansas!
Opps... I put Arkansas before Oklahoma. Sorry!
Fort Smith is almost right on the border of Oklahoma and Arkansas. We made it to Fort Smith at 12:30 P.M. on Friday. We would be really early to Fort Rock, so we decided to spend some time at Fort Smith Historic Site which turned out to be a lot of fun!
My dad and I at Fort Smith still.
Me in front of Judge Parker's court room and jail house.
Jude Parker's Court room and jail house! It was really interesting. Judge Parker was known as the hanging judge. He sentenced 92 people to hang 'till dead. I think he lived up to his nickname!
On Hwy. 23. This is the road to Fort Rock!
There she is! Fort Rock!
When Dad and I got there we were early still so we decided to go on a walk down the horse trail. We ran into so many spider webs.
A creek we found while walking.
Ah...... this place was gorgeous!
Ending our walk with a picture in front of the fort. This is my dad.
This is me.
This is Saturday morning! When I woke up and looked outside I saw the mist and the sun and thought 'What an awesome picture that would be!'.
Sitting on the front porch in the morning.
This is me horseback riding. My horses name was Jinger/Ginger. I don't know how they smell it.
This is my dad. His horses name was Angel.
My dad doing archery.

Me doing archery! Susan Pevensie and Legolas make it look a lot easier than it really is!
At first I was a Gwyn/Susan, then my luck ran out and I started to do horribly! This pic was taken in my Gwyn/Susan time. Actually, one of the girls started calling me Gwyn and Susan!
Annie Oakley! That's what my dad started calling me when we were at the rifle range. I did better there than at the archery range.
Getting harnessed up for the zip-line!
Sitting down and getting ready to jump off and fly!
I believe I can fly!!!!!!!
Weeeee........!!!!!!!!..........eeeeee......
This is how tall it was.

We actually went canoeing down the Mulberry River, but I didn't get pics of it! Even though I didn't get pics of it I can tell you about it.
We rented a canoe and on the first rapped we flipped over. I was so scared, but of course I lived with only a scratch on my knee from all the rocks. The second rapped came and yet again we flipped. I lived through it too, but I lost my flip flops, my camera got wet, and I got more scratches and bruises. Then we finally figured out that my dad needed to kneel in the back in order for us to stay in the canoe! We didn't flip for a while but one time the current was so strong that we ended up flipping! I lived through it again, but today I am sore! The third time was the last time we flipped, thank God! My dad hurt his wrist and his toe, and I just got a lot of bruises and scratches. That is our canoeing experience. Even though I have a bunch of bruises and scratches I would do it again!

My dad and I had a wonderful time! Fort Rock is an amazing place! I really recommend to take a trip there.

Wow Moriah! What a special time for you and your Dad! My Pa is a St. Louis Rams fan (NFL football) and I am a Baltimore Ravens fan. One year they were playing each other (this doesn't happen very often since the Rams are in the NFC, and the Ravens in the AFC, if you know football, you know what I mean) in St Louis and Pa took me to see the game. It was an awesome weekend. We had such a good time then that we went back a few years later and are now planning on going back to ST. Louis in a few years.

Thanks for sharing with us!

I went to the Father Daughter thing to, and I also did MUCH better at the shooting than archery.
