Ride the Talimena Scenic Drive - Overnight Trip

This will be an overnight trip to the Talimena Scenic Drive, across the top of the Ouachita Mountains in Eastern Oklahoma. We will leave early Saturday morning and have lunch in Talahina before spending the afternoon cruising this beautiful drive over to Mena, Arkansas. We will spend the night there before returning via Beaver's Bend. 

The LimeTree Inn ($55) and the Sun Country Inn ($89) are both clean and convenient and near each other, so either one would be a good place to stay.  Linda and I will probably book the Sun Country.

    Hope you have a safe and wonderful trip. Wish I were able to go. As you might imagine, with three worship services, Sundays are my busiest work day.

    I fear that March, typically the coldest month of the year, might offer challenging weather for the Talimena Scenic Drive. I would love to go, weather permitting. They tell me, because the Fall Colors are so beautiful, October is the best time to visit Talimena.

      Actually,Jjanuary is the coldest month there , but I would not object to delaying the ride until May (I can't go in April). And you are right -- the colors in October are great so we might also go again next October. I went last year in October and it was 38 degrees when we left, but it was worth it. Anyone else want to delay this ride until May?
