And Really, So Should You Spring Comes To W/iite Rock By F A U N E CONNER j Would you like to get away from it all. really away? How about a trip up (o the clouds where eagles soar, the wind whips by and the view is breathtaking in #11 directions? That's where you'll be at lofty While Rock -- one of the; highest peaks in the Ozarks. The White Rock Mountain Recreation Area is p a r t of the Ozark National Forest and is located in the midst of Hie rugged Boston Mountains. Some 94 acres on the summit of White Rock comprise n beautiful semi-wilderness retreat, where vacationers find themselves p l e a s a n t l y ami distantly removed from the trappings of civilization. There are various access roads to While Rock, all of t h e m along - dirt roads surrounded by the primitive enchantment of the forest. One of the longer, more austere way.* to the recreation areas is 20 miles from Hwy. 71 through Winfrey Valley, up the ridge to Bidville anri then on to the top of White Rock. The drive is winding and humpy, but the rocky road passes picturesque rural landscapes, crosses clear rushing streams, skirls around natural springs cascading from the hillsides and clings tiiountain rims where the vistas are fantastic. TWISTING KOAD Nearing the 2,287 foot cresl at While Rock, travelers wil fine! the forest road becoming i n c r e a s i n g l y narrow a n c twisting. For this reason, ran gers in the Boston Mount air District advise campers to bring only small trailers tents with them' Visitors a r e also cautioned to watch their children while at While Rock because of the steep, sheer cliffs that encircle the rnoun laintop. The most popular and scenic spot atop White Rock is the southern point of the mountain White Rock itself, which is a huge, bald promontory t h a overlooks the "Grand Canyoi of the Ozarks." The g i a n t craggy-faced rock got its nami from the fact that it looks whik when seen from the valley f below.

Picnic acililies include concrete tables nd grills, with water fountains nd rest rooms nearby. The camping area, in another cclion of While Rock, is open rom April lo September and s cqmp]ed with picnic tables nd water. There is no fee for sc of the campground.

There . is no telephone at White Rock and communication is by shorl wave radio. LOOP TRAIL To reap all of White Rock's beauty time to ollow the Lonn Trail that cir- les around the rim of the ummit. This well-marked sky- path offers views of urrounding Bowles, Shepherd, Vhiting, Potato Knob. Black nd Patrick Mountains. The nature trail is lovely for hike year 'round, but it is mrlicularly so in the spring- ime when scattered retlbud and Vhitc Rock's famed colorful logwood trees arc in bloom and vild azaleas grow out of the cracks in Ihe cliffs.

One such side road goes by the home of 05-year-old Charlie Bowles, who has lived all his life on an isolated 80- acre f a r m on top of the mountain. Charlie's grandfather settled the farm in the 1800's and Charlie recalls that it wasn't until the 1930's that a forest service road was built magnificent natural visitors should take Long up to nearby Exploring the irea F u r t h e r , ind ·oads White farm.

BEARS NUMEROUS Charlie, who was among the 2CC workers who built the recreational facilities at White Rock, knows much aboul the area and says that there are more black bear in the mountains here than deer. The bear are often attracted by picnic- ·cers at While Rock and also enjoy raiding Charlie's beehives during the summer. To round out a relaxing trip :o remote White Rock, visitors should plan on making one more stop in the forest - rustic Shores Lake. Shores Lake is just below White Rock and is reached by traveling six miles on forest road 1505. The 82-acre lake is in a setting of virgin pine timber and has facilities f o r picnicking camping. swimming and a boat launching ramp for fishermen. Leaving Shores Lake, forest road 1505 continues a short distance further to paved Hwy. 215 which extends 15 miles south to Mulberry and joins with Interstate 40.

The Presidcn did not ask when the crimina case would come to trial. Most important, nowhere in the conversation did .John Dean say that the Justice Departmen had held off the indictmens a long as possible.
