Y'all live in nice areas of Arkansas. We come up from MS a couple times a year to enjoy the natural state.

Sitting around this morning wondering if our IDPA match will be rained out today. Match is supposed to start at 9:00am...weather radar is showing green and yellow about the size of Texas moving this way. Sure want to go out shooting this AM.

I've been told the Ouachita's were once the tallest mountains in what is now the US.

Well you forced me to do some Googling...found this in Wikipedia. Take what you want to believe...

"The Ouachita Mountains are fold mountains like the Appalachian Mountains to the east, and were originally part of that range. During the Pennsylvanian part of the Carboniferous period, about 300 million years ago, the coastline of the Gulf of Mexico ran through the central parts of Arkansas. The South American Plate drifted northward, riding up over the denser North American continental crust.[6] Geologists call this collision the Ouachita orogeny. The collision buckled the overriding plate, producing the fold mountains we call the Ouachitas. [I]At one time the Ouachita Mountains were very similar in height to the current elevations of the Rocky Mountains.[/I] Because of the Ouachitas' age, the craggy tops have eroded away, leaving the low formations that used to be the heart of the mountains."

I want to believe that I am sitting on "Gulf" front property. Instead I live on "golf" front property.

I contacted the geology department at OU university some years back and they think the mountains in SE Oklahoma were never over 5000 ft elevation. But that is just an opinion from them.
Anyway I live in Poteau, OK near FT. Smith, AR

As someone wrote about the Arkansas mountains...It's not the height of our mountains that make them great...it's the depth of the valleys.
