Don’t Just See the Square

There is so much more to Hot Springs National Park than Bathhouse Row. I was reminded of this when I spent a few minutes behind the counter at the park’s visitor center with the Park Ranger who also serves as the Artist in Residence Coordinator. Visitors would ask what all there was to do in the park. He’d point to Bathhouse row, draw a square around it and then point out the boundaries of the park that went far beyond the square and advise,
“Don’t just see the square.”There are trails and vistas and so much beauty outside the square. (But, I confess, I do love to photograph those old buildings.)

Here are some photos I took yesterday from a portion of the Sunset Trail that takes you to Stonebridge Road and part of what to be the Fordyce Estate.
