A few years ago, if you would asked me to walk outside in the wilderness for no reason, I would have laughed at you and told you to take a hike (literally, LOL)!

After I checked off my 50th state in 2017, I was looking for a new “list” to work on. Almost 6 month exactly later in May of 2018, I found myself at the 2,753 feet above sea level at the highest natural point in Arkansas, Magazine Mountain. It was the first of 17 states I would summit in 2018.
