Betsy and I visited Crooked Creek in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas on our way to Mount Nebo last week. The water was crystal clear and we could easily see the colorful creek bed. Much of the rock in the area is slate, but I can't account for the red color of a large part of the creek bed. It is certainly colorful, however.
