Oklahoma Trail Day 3: Little Rock

Our original intention was to drive straight from Memphis to Fort Sill, but seeing Little Rock from the bridge changed our minds. There is a beautiful river-front stage with a walking trail and a river market, so we decided to stop. The real deciding factor was that the Arkansas Travelers had a game at 7, and I'm a sucker for Minor League Baseball. We walked around on the river front and went in some shops in the market. There was surprisingly a lot of culture here, so my schema of Arkansas has definitely been modified. We found a great restaurant called Flying Saucer, and their professions of great beer and brats drew us in and the $3 pints sealed the deal. MiLB never disappoints, and we had a great time at the game. I don't know much about the Texas League, but I was glad to learn that there are teams in Tulsa and OKC, which will make our weekends in OK a lot of fun. Photo highlights of the day:
The helmet had ice cream in it, but let's be honest, that didn't last long enough for a photo.
