It's the most wonderful time of year (Halloween season!). Elmwood Cemetery will be hosting their very own Souls of the City (a movie focusing on the people buried throughout the cemetery) followed by the 1922 black and white movie Nosferatu.

This year, we are pushing back our Fall Leaf Hike by 1 week, since it seems like we were about 1 week off from the height of the color change the past couple of years. We will do the Mt. Nebo Rim Trail in Arkansas again, about 3:15 from Memphis. We will meet to carpool from the North side of the Bass Pro Pyramid parking lot, close to the bridge that crosses over to the Mud Island residential neighborhood.
We will be leaving at 9:00 am sharp, so please plan on being there earlier than that, so that we can arrange rides.
We will eat a picnic lunch at the top of Nebo on the grassy knoll behind the Visitor Center before beginning our hike, so bring a brown bag lunch with you. There is also some limited food available at the Visitor Center at the top of Nebo.
Our hike will begin at approximately 1:30 pm.
Bring a camera, as you are sure to have some spectacular fall views, along with a seasonal waterfall, and views of Lake Dardanelle down in the valley.
For those who would like, we will have dinner together after the hike at a local favorite: Old South Restaurant, 1330 E Main St, Russellville, AR 72801. Please indicate in your RSVP if you will be joining us for that, so that we can get a headcount to the restaurant.
Mount Nebo Rim Trail is a 3.6 mile heavily trafficked loop trail that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. Because this trail encircles the rim of the mountain, it offers panoramic vista views the entire hike.
