From Home to Home, and Back, Day 3, Part 3: Little Rock’s River Walk.

Arkansas’ state capital has been in the forefront of a statewide effort, that started with Bill Clinton as Governor, and has continued through the Huckabee and Beebe administrations, to get the populace up and at ’em.  A good part of this effort, in the capital city, revolves around the Arkansas River, and the recreational opportunities it, and its banks, provide.

The focus is fitness, for one and all, starting with the children.  I saw people of all ages and ethnicities getting into the act.  Count Kasimir Pulaski, who aided in the first U.S. Army, is honoured here, well west of the first frontier of the United States.  Here are Pulaski Way and a bust of the Count.

The message is clear about fitness, from the outset of the trail system along the Arkansas.

There are some obstacles and sculptures along the way.

The river inspires both LR and the City of North Little Rock.

Kids have a high bar to reach, with grandpa getting to “relax’.  It wouldn’t be that way with my grandbabies.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

This includes shopping!  Here is River Market.

Yes, in Little Rock, life is getting increasingly sweet, with plenty of hard work being done.

Arkansas treated me nicely that day. I made it to Memphis, late at night, and would blaze to northwest Virginia the following night.  There was a deadline to meet.

  1. What a great place to take long, relaxing walks with a camera. As someone else said, thanks for taking us along with you through your photos.

  2. I always thought that Little Rock, where Bill Clinton came from was a very poor place. But seeing the photos, it looks like a beautiful place to be. Thank you for sharing and explaining all the places. 🙂
