Petit Jean State Park, Arkansas, January 6, 2007
(click on image for larger version)
This is the eastern tip of Petit Jean Mountain which is a part of Petit Jean State Park. A public road takes you to the parking lot about 75 yards from the overlook. A board walk has been constructed to afford a good view of the Arkansas River Valley to the north and various mountains to the south. There are steps to exit the board walk and climb out on the rocks if you so desire. The elevation is approximately 1050 (feet above sea level) and the normal pool elevation of the river below is 286 feet. At more than 750 feet above average terrain, Stout’s point affords a grand view.
This place has been a favorite of photographers for years. There are approximately 300 degrees of view of the valley below. For those who like to patch photographs together to make panoramas, this is an excellent place.
