    Through the winding hills and small towns of Arkansas we traveled. It was the regular group of college friends off on another adventure, It was a nice cool spring morning as we arrived at the entrance of the trail (Which looked like something straight out of Lord of the Rings film). After stretching for a bit we set out into the wild. At first the path winded through woods, down some hills and had some normal scenery until we reached the cliffs! It seemed as if God himself had reached down and taken a block of earth from Arkansas and we were standing at the edge of it (Kinda like Minecraft). We decided we wanted to see what was at the bottom of one of these cliffs so we made are way down one by one to find what was like a mini cavern (complete with mini waterfall). 
    Some of us carved are names into the cool rock and looked out from are small rocky shelter, after a while of contemplating life we climbed back up and set out again. As we got further and further into the  path realized that the rocks and some of the trees were growing bigger! So what did we do? we climbed them. looking out from on top of the massive craters we took some pictures and got some great views of Arkansas country, then we set out again. What we found next left us all in amazement!
   Through the trees and in the distance we saw it, a massive cliff lunging out of the side of the woods and hanging over nothing but air. The cliff was almost an exact replica of "Pride Rock" from "The Lion King"! We all rain up the path trying to get the cliff. It was incredible we stood out on edge of it catching powerful and cool breeze of Arkansas air. You could see everything from that cliff, hawks flew literally right in front of you, and it seemed like you could see to the ends of the earth. We walked the cliff a bit got comfortable and eat lunch (there is nothing more satisfying then a Peanut butter and Jelly on a cliff.) After are discovery we headed back with are stories and are memories.
    The cliff is an amazing sight and can be found in Hot Springs National Park.
