Parking in Parkin

Smile :)
We got to add to MY collection of parks yesterday when we went on a long drive to the Parkin Archeological State Park. I peed there - therefore it is now mine - that is rules according to Reilly ! Here is some information about it

Parkin Archeological State Park in eastern Arkansas at Parkin preserves and interprets the Parkin site on the St. Francis River where a 17-acre Mississippi Period, American Indian village was located from A.D. 1000 to 1600. A large platform mound on the river bank remains. The site is important for understanding the history and prehistory of northeast Arkansas. There were once many archeological sites similar to Parkin throughout this region, but they did not survive as eastern Arkansas was settled. Many scholars believe the Parkin site is the American Indian village of Casqui visited by the expedition of Hernando de Soto in 1541, and written about in his chronicles.

Oh - a bridge - we love bridges!
Look - another Bridge
The Indian Mound - hmm looks like a lump in the ground
Shady spot and rest

  6. Glad you guys are getting out and enjoying the weather! Also glad mom is feeling so good and is out and about too! Now, quit hogging up all that coolness and send it down here, k? BOL!

  7. What a cool park to add to your list! I am glad you marked your territory accordingly, Reilly. You don't want some other dog, who doesn't appreciate the park as much as you, to claim it for his own.

  10. OMD this is Wonderful. We love HISTORY on our hill.... We have Indian Mounds about 25 Miles from our house... called the Great CIRCLE mound... and Several Effigy Mounds...
