Unfortunately, the only alternatives would have been to split this post into three separate posts (at my biweekly schedule, this would take up over a month) OR to cut out two of the locations and just go with one of them (but that would make this feature seem much less special).
And we're all about special.
This is why this post is called Black River (Arkansas). Each feature here occurs at a confluence with the Black River in Arkansas. Starting upstream, this includes:
- The Black River and the Current River at Pocahontas, AR
- The Black River and the Spring River at Black Rock, AR
- The Black River and the White River at Jacksonport, AR
It's been a while since I've written so much in one post. I think most readers skip to the gifs right away, but if you've been reading all of this you must be quite the scholar and I thank you for hearing me out.
