My brother, some friends and I go backpacking every year between Christmas and New Years. This year we went to the Buffalo River in Arkansas. We couldn't hike as far as we wanted because excessive rain made river crossings in the winter unthinkable (seven each day- nobody wanted to get hypothermia). The weather the first day was nonstop rain and clouds until the early a.m., and then opened up to the most beautiful hiking weather we've had in a long time. Due to work constraints we had only two days to drive & hike, so we were only able to cover 10.5 miles. The park is surprisingly scenic and we are planning to go back in warmer weather. In all, it was a great little vacation away from day-to-day life. Glad we did it. All the footage was shot on a GoPro Hero 2, 1080p @ 30fps. The song is "Fighting Tao" by Hurt off their Goodbye to the Machine album.
