Lake Nimrod is formed by a dam on the Fourche-Lafavre River in Western Arkansas. Along the shoreline, the color right now is spectacular with the hardwoods. Pines provide a green backdrop as you move away from the water. You can see from the level of the lake how dry the summer was.

Below the dam, the river trails off into the National Forest.

Good capture of the landscape seasonal changes.

Without some reference point it's tough to judge the water level problem. But as you indicate it must have been a dry year.

Good point, selvin. I've been around flood control/power generation lakesso long that I immediately look at the distance from the edge of the water to the tree line as a lake level indicator. Where you see a broad section with no vegetation, as along this shore, that is land that should normally be under water.

Hey there.....glad to see these photos from Arkansas. Am planning on heading that way next weekend. What are the colors really doing down there? Am I going to be too late?

Probably will depend on where you're going. Most of the mountains are just now hitting their peak color, although the extreme north might be past it. In the Southwest, we are just now getting a full color turn. Check out some of the other postings from my outing yesterday. All of these were taken between Hot Springs and Russellville on Highway 7. I could see a definite difference in the amount of color over just about 20-40 mile range.

Thanks for the info Paul. We are not sure where we are heading, but hopefully will find something. We have a JEEP so will be looking for those off the beaten path places.
