As Zaph had waited for us in the trailer while we checked out the stores we decided to take him for a drive and look for a nice place for a walk. The local map showed “Beaver Dam” a few miles down the road from us. “Beaver Dam” turned out to be a large dam built by the Corp of Engineers creating a large lake called Beaver Lake and some beautiful parkland.
These paintings are done by local artists. You can bid on your favorite one and buy it.
The garden of the Basin Spring Hotel. Motor bikes are a common site in Eureka Springs. The area roads attract bikers from all over.
Eureka Springs was famous for it's "healing springs" in the late 1800's.
Beware of the "Attack Bunny". Some stores will put everyone to work including the family pet.
Another street view.
The Crescent Hotel. It sits high on a hill overlooking the town --- people say that it is haunted.
A view from the back porch of the Crescent Hotel.
We were standing down the road from the Crescent Hotel and looked across the valley and saw Christ of the Ozarks. It really is tall.
This is one big beaver dam .... The insert is the tower you can see in the middle of the photo.
