Arkansas is an enchanting state. There’s no doubt about it, the Natural State definitely earns its nickname; we’re all natural wonder all the time. There are so many enchanting places in Arkansas, it can be extremely challenging to sort them all into a comprehensive bucket list. Luckily, though, your friendly local Arkansas writer is keeping a running list of every place you absolutely have to see before you die. If you printed out all of the Arkansas bucket lists on, you’d have a good start on activities that will last you the rest of your life. But wait! Stop the presses! (Or, you know, printer.) You’ve absolutely got to add one more place to your Arkansas bucket list.

That place is called Petit Jean Mountain.
