Hail Arkansas

Good Morning! On this lovely fall morning we're opening up our hearts and sending protection energy out to the next state on the DC40 Prayer Siege; Arkansas. If you'd like to join the conversation head over to our Facebook Group "What Makes Your State Great". Here we're chatting about the good things about each state and sending positive energy out to them. No religion or non religion, mostly great photos, great pictures and great stories about the states near and dear to our hearts.

So let's get moving ...

Hail Arkansas!

Arkansas contains over 600,000 acres of lakes and 9,700 miles of streams and rivers. The state contains six national park sites, two-and-a half million acres of national forests, seven national scenic byways, three state scenic byways, and 50 state parks.

Since the 1830s the area now known as Hot Springs National Park has bathed notables as diverse as Franklin D. Roosevelt, Babe Ruth, and Al Capone. The park is entirely surrounded by the city of Hot Springs, the boyhood home of President Bill Clinton.

Located just outside of Murfreesboro, Crater of Diamonds State Park allows dedicated prospectors to search for precious gems including diamonds, amethyst, garnet, jasper, agate, and quartz.

The largest freestanding rock formation located in Eureka Springs has a base circumference of about 10 inches and the top measures almost 10 feet across.

The original inhabitants of Arkansas were:

The Caddo Indians
The Chickasaw Indians
The Osage Indians
The Quapaw Indians
The Tunica Indians

As Samhain approaches, my mind drifts to the moon. For me, the link between this sacred day and the moon is unbreakable. Taking time to remember our ancestors and honor the dead. While doing my research for this track through the states, I found this amazing piece of music. It's called The Moon - Red Sky - Native American - Chant - Meditation.

Namaste & Blessed Be!
