A Note from the Road: Road Trip, Arkansas - Reclaiming the Stairs - Lake Ann - Bella Vista, Arkansas
Mother Nature moves fast in the Ozarks.

It amazes me how fast things are reabsorbed here Mom.
I have been so used to the dry, parched landscape that would leach all of the moisture out of old structures, but they would still remain intact - at least for much longer than they do in the Ozarks. The humidity and undergrowth reclaim wood so quickly you can almost see it.
It reminds me of that one show, "After Us" or something like that, where they simulated how fast nature would take over if all humans were gone. It wasn't long.
Ahhh, the joy of impermanence.
