We woke up and packed up pretty quickly so we could hit the road and then start our hike out to Whitaker Point. The ride to the trailhead was beautiful, and took us on some dirt roads through the country.Eventually we reached the trailhead. After packing up some snacks we embarked on the trail.The hike out was straightforward; first taking us down through the trees, then to a stream-fed waterfall, and then along a ridge with beautiful views. Once we got to the point, we immediately got why its such a big deal. The view from out on the rock was incredible.We decided to hang out on the rock and eat lunch so that we could take in the view for a while.We enjoyed a nice walk back, retracing our steps from before. Once back at the car we hit the road and started making our way towards Little Rock. We arrived in the late afternoon and ran some errands before checking into a hotel for the night. By this point we both were feeling pretty sick of staying in hotels, but with the heavy rain its almost impossible for us to stay dry otherwise. We had a mellow evening in the hotel as the rain poured down.
