The bridge spans the Arkansas River which is part of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System which was completed in 1971. It is 445 miles long starting at the Mississippi River and ending in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Looking west up the river you see Murray Lake, Two Rivers Park, and Pinnacle Mountain which is a state park. I plan on doing our next blog on our adventure climbing to the top of Pinnacle Mountain, so make sure you check back so you can read it.

We hope to have all of the body work completed on the RV here soon so that we can leave Arkansas and visit some place where we have not been yet. It is nice though to be able to visit the attractions in the area, but we have been in this location way too long.
So if find yourself in Little Rock, Arkansas and have time, take it, to visit the longest pedestrian bridge in North America.
God bless and may He keep you safe!
Don, Misty, and Kids...
