Ponca is located in the upper Buffalo National River wilderness in north western Arkansas. It is a tiny, secluded community home to the state's finest river and trail scenery.
Grandson Jayden wanted Grandma to take his picture climbing a tree. New to the sport, his face quickly went from "Cool, I did it!" to "Yikes! Where's the ground?!?" Fortunately, he was only a couple of feet from it, but for the mind of a 4-yr old, it might as well be twenty! For me, it was one of those genuine, endearing childhood a-ha moments that I was thankful to have camera in hand for.
