We arrived at Hot Springs and somehow, which we did not think was possible, it was hotter than it was in Houston! We stayed at Cloud Nine RV Park. It was a nice park except there was no grass anywhere in the park. We came to find out the owner had a phobia of sorts about grass, she killed any grass that ever tried to grow. She believed grass contains chiggers which contain lots of diseases. Yeah, okay, sure thing :) And leave it to us to decide to ignore the heat warnings and go ahead and plan a 4 mile hike in 100º heat through the hills with the dogs at Lake Ouchita. It was a beautiful hike around a peninsula extending out to the lake like a finger. We traversed the entire length of it. The dogs had a great time, stopping for a swim and a drink every mile. We even took a dip at the two mile mark. The lake was very clear and cool. Jack and Jinjer were so good on the trail today off leash and had a blast. Headed to Bowling Green now.
