Wednesday, June 28, 2017 – This morning Roy removed the broken slide motor and put in the new slide motor. Dora’s slide is happy now! I spent some time painting rocks!
This is the slide motor
When that was done, we decided to go into Hot Springs and check things out. Hot Springs National Park is part of the city of Hot Springs. We’re only 7 minutes from the center of town. We drove past the Visitor Center and Bathhouse Row. Very cool!
When we saw the sign at the beginning of a 3 1/2 mile road leading up the mountain to Hot Springs Mountain Tower we decided to check that out.
After roaming around the gift shop and paying the $5 each fee, we took the tower elevator up 216 feet to the observation decks . There we got to enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the Ouachita Mountains, Hot Springs Mountain, and Diamond Lakes area – all at 1,256 feet above sea level.
First thing we saw was our own Boots parked right down there where we left him!
Tomorrow we will probably go to Garvan Woodland Gardens which is a 210-acre botanical garden!!!!
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
