I explored the area around 35°37'59.19"N 93°38'21.93"W. I searched from that point up all of those drainages. The only thing of interest was from that point up a couple hundred yards. I found a little waterfall (5ft or so) that had a neat little bridge. Above that was a long stretch of moss covered flat rock.

I explored a fantastic rugged canyon (35°37'28.14"N 93°40'32.68"W). In most spots the walls of the canyon were vertical or very near vertical. The only way into the canyon was pretty much only uptsream and downstream. I found two nice waterfalls from side drainages into the canyon.

My wife and I hiked down to Bingham Hollow Falls and explored a new area around 35°38'48.56"N 93°44'28.87"W. We found a couple of small falls (one is around 15-20ft)

I explored a couple of areas and found two great waterfalls! The first area was around 35°38'54.62"N 93°41'27.99"W. I found a couple of smaller falls and then a really nice 20 ft waterfall. Just below that waterfall there are some huge boulders. It seems to be a old landslide/rockslide. The stream cut all around and through the boulders and at high water could be a really neat sight. I then hiked up to 35°39'31.40"N 93°40'55.17"W where I found another 20ft tall waterfall. Just down from that waterfall I found a fantastic waterfall that looks to be around 45-50ft tall!

We had some severe weather and in addition to some quarter size hail I caught this lightning strike... it was very close!
