Always looking for that one thing to do to get out of the heat in the summer time. Walk down to the dock and it will be 10 degrees cooler there. Go to Dry Run Creek and it will be even cooler, or just canoe or kayak down one of the rivers and you will keep your cool. Summers are quite warm here with August being typically the hotest. But, then again, it is all relative. The people from Memphis think that Northern Arkansas is a delight during mid summer.
