Exploring Arkansas January 2018

Gaston's White River Resort near Bull Shoals, prides itself on being ranked America's number one trout fishing resort. –Having its own airstrip and award-winning restaurant helps…but the other factor is their signature "shore lunch" they offer with all the fixins, including of course – the trout you catch. There was a time when traveling the two-lane highway is all there was in America. We take a backroads tour from Little Rock to Memphis along Highway 70 and relive the "fun" that travel used to be. Every second weekend in October, the World Championship Quartz Crystal Dig is held in the Ouachita Mountains near the Quartz Crystal Capital of the World – Mount Ida. Coco's happens to be a five-star Mexican restaurant, attached to a gas station, that's in the middle of nowhere near Cabot.
