The Ancient Forest In Arkansas That’s Right Out Of A Storybook
There may not be trolls under the bridge, nor a yellow-brick path to follow but the forest we’re looking at today still feels like the setting for a storybook. The Hot Springs National Park protects an ancient forest that is one of the most beautiful in the state. Let’s watch out for grandmotherly wolves and hike through this unbelievably old forest.
