We started from the Turner Bend store on the Mulberry River.
South on 23 aka The Pig Trail for several miles.
Everything is super green right now.
Rain was all around us.
The Pig Trail can be a little busy with large vehicles but you are only on it for a bit.
Watching the rain roll in.
Regroup before turning left on 164. Great view.
The route is pretty flat to rolling up until this point. Pain is on the horizon.
The AR 103 climb is about 3 miles, 852 feet gain.
A handful of great turns & ramps.
Looking down the switchbacks.
Paul B manages a smile.
Heading west on 215. One of the coolest roads in the Natural State.
Crazy smooth tarmac meandering along the turquoise Mulberry River.
Back to Turner Bend.
What a morning.
