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.
