We start the Talimena Drive, a scenic 54 mile stretch of highway that climbs along the ridges of two mountains with wonderful views on each side. It starts near Talahina, OK. and ends at Mena, AR.
I love steam locomotives. We found this one on display at the top of Rich Mountain in the Queen Wilhelmina State Park.
I was born too late. The perfect career would have been as an engineer on a steam locomotive.
The Queen Wilhelmina Lodge was opened in 1898. It was named after Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands who was crowned the same year in hopes that she would honor them with a visit. She didn't.
