I heard about this place on a Huffington Post blog: The One Thing You Must Do In Each U.S. State. For Arkansas it was visit the Anthony Chapel in the Garvan Woodland Gardens. I have never heard of it but just looking at the picture in the blog post made me want to go. So I did.
Got to the entrance. Well this looks pretty already.
Saw the signs for the Anthony Chapel and Carillon so decided to go there.
The Carillon is quite tall.
And got the first glimpse of Anthony Chapel. You can actually see through it before entering.Wow!
Getting excited to enter!
Speechless! And outside the janitor cleaning the chapel, I was the only one here. The chapel is 6 stories high and made of pine beams and floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
The glass walls.
Definitely signing the guest book.
Leaving the Chapel I figured I would walk around and check out the area. Walk past the Carillon.
And follow the trail.
Lets go to the Amphitheater shall we.
So peaceful and pretty!
Time to walk to the boat dock.
I see Lake Hamilton.
Crossing the small bridge
I love this reflection on Lake Hamilton.
Note to self. Will live there in that house one day!
I love being the only person here and the quietness of things.
Time to walk back to the car
Walking around I notice another parking lot.
Oh so that is the Garden Entrance. Doh! Shoot I'm almost out of time.
I wish I could spend more time here but I am on a time crunch to reach Dallas, Texas so it is time to head out.
