Up Up To The Eye Of The Needle

Laura and Astrid hiked the Indian Creek Trail Sunday.  It is Astrid's favorite of all their hikes and is not for a beginner.  Laura never made it to  "eye of the needle".  Sometimes, we have to say to our children--"go on, I will wait here".  Laura did and Astrid made it up to the awesome site.  She took a few phone photos and shared some with me.  Sharing with you here.
 Looking through the "Eye of the Needle"
Astrid made this little video while she was sitting in the "Eye".

Found this information about the Indian Creek Trail!
Indian Creek Trail is a 4.7 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Jasper, Arkansas that features a waterfall and is only recommended for very experienced adventurers. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.  The trail is known for the most accidents in the Buffalo River trail system.  To reach the falls you must scramble through a rocky creek, at times wading through water or you must travel on the sheer edge of a high bluff, or a combination of the above.  The reward is in the scenery.

I chose a video of another's hike to share.  It is the second half of their hike.  Laura said the hike was about 5 miles and it wore her out as the terrain is difficult to navigate.
