Shinall Mountain

From FranaWiki

Shinall Mountain is in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains in Pulaski County, Arkansas. The mountain is near the Chenal Valley neighborhood of Little Rock, Arkansas. Shinall's peak is 1056 feet in elevation, the highest spot in the county.

The mountain is a phonetic spelling of the Chenault family of early French settlers who settled nearby.

Shinall Mountain is made of Carboniferous rocks, and plant fossils are sometimes found in the bluish-black shales of its bluff-sides.
