I have worked in 38 states, and so far north Arkansas is the most beautiful of them all. My daughters live about a mile from the buffalo river. Very nice pictures.

Sadly they're all well known locations that act as magnets and get people regularly so from an isolated wilderness survival/backpacking perspective, not a great place to go. Oddly enough Missouri's populated enough that it's hard to find places where you wouldn't run into people even though there are some really awesome places to go from a pure environment perspective.

Love the Ozarks! There is so much area the Ozarks actually cover. I camp and canoe there every year at least once, usually twice. We usually canoe the Current River and get out at Aker's Ferry. Usually camp at "Jason's Place" near Aker's Ferry. The area is well worth a visit to any one that has never been.

It's something less of a problem here in the arkansas ozarks. I'm spending some time tomorrow squirrel hunting on indian creek in pope county. I doubt I'll see another human being. Fact is I'm counting on it.
