Standing on the Boundary

The  Winding Stair Mountain National Recreation Area is located within the Quachita national Forest.  While there I walked to a spot,  I was standing on the earth  that was once the end of the trail in the United States. A lot of history here.....

This sign scratched with graffiti, faded, and overrun with mold and mildew tells a story.....

Today, legal battles for the boundary still persist.....

The boundary marker

The marker (very bottom of picture) is just a few feet from the last step leading back up to the road.
