This is a great trip spring to fall. Leave Ozark early. Up 'Pigtrail' to Turner Bend on 23, biker hangout. Make it to Jasper, eat a hamburger at Ozark Cafe that will slake any hunger. Take hyway 7 to Hot Springs, (noted as top ten road in USA), find a room, eat BBQ at MaClards-been serving since 1928. Hot Springs has multiple attractions for any tastes-lakes,mountains, IQ Zoo, Alligator farm, casinos and racetrack. Sleep well, day two requires stamina for saying 'OH, look at that'. Head out on 270 west and enjoy the ride. When you make Mena, if you have killed enough time taking pictures or shopping Crystal markets you may want to eat lunch at The New China restaurant, (opposite hyway from Walmart). Next leg is Talimena Drive. Very breath taking, both ends have gift shop for 'T' shirt and gifts. The lodge on top is a must stop and if you did not have Chinese in Mena, it is great for lunch. Off the mountain top, thru Talihina and now into 'Bigfoot' country. Great scenery and very little traffic. Enjoy the Nat'l forest to Bethel, trip over to 259 and head north to 'three sticks' monumaent to John Kennedy. You will end at Sallisaw and if you like BBQ, Wild Horse Mountain BBQ is the best in OK, halfway between Arkansas river and Sallisaw on 59.
