Exploring Arkansas December 2018
Multi-state fiddle champion Mary Parker of Mountain View began playing fiddle at the age of 5; she now plays six musical instruments plus sings and dances – and yes, she's making quite a name for herself around the country. Village Creek State Park near Forrest City has not one, but two lakes that are popular with anglers and kayakers. The Wings of Honor museum preserves the history of the Walnut Ridge Army Air Field, which was one of seven Army flying schools in Arkansas during World War II. They are a phenomenon near "Y" City in west Arkansas – huge boulders called "erratics" that really don't belong there because of age difference and composition compared to the local shale and sandstone outcrops.
