Not knowing when the next time we’d visit Arkansas, we stopped at Hot Springs National Park on the way home. As far as National Parks go, Hot Springs was a bit…small. Basically it’s one side of one street in the town of Hot Springs. I was there on a Saturday morning in February and I parked on the street to visit. If you don’t plan to “take the baths,” there isn’t a lot to see.  But National Parks aren’t all grand vistas, sometimes just protecting a small natural feature is enough.
