Steel Creek at the Buffalo River

Boxley Valley and the Buffalo National River Region in and around Ponca, AR may just be my favorite part of the world. It has a majestic and untamed beauty like none other! Though it’s quite a drive for us, we make many trips there a year. In the Summer we go swimming and kayaking or […]
