Cadron Settlement Park
Lucy called Charlie Brown a blockhead and once you read the sign at Cadron Settlement Park in front of the reconstructed blockhouse, that’s the voice you will keep hearing in your head. Listen to it as you wander around the hiking trails or think about it as you sit at a picnic table and study the reconstructed building. The only way to get it out of your mind is to take the trail next to the Arkansas River and let the sound of the water wash it away.
