Arkansas’ Unusually Cold Temperatures Have Had A Rare Side Effect
The first of the month brought a pretty dramatic cold snap to the River Valley area (and most of the state). The sudden chill brought the perfect conditions for a quirky little phenomenon to happen in the forests of Arkansas. If you didn’t get the chance to see it we may be in luck with the temperature drop coming this weekend. Hopefully these frosty flowers will “bloom” a few more times before the ground totally freezes. Careful where you step as we tiptoe through the fields of frost flowers.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
If you’ve captured any pictures of the frost flowers around Arkansas we would love to see them! You can use the #arkansasonly for a chance to have your photo featured on our Instagram .
