J.B. Weisenfels has lived in rural Arkansas for three decades. She is a writer, a mom, and a graduate student. She is also an avid collector of tacky fish whatnots, slightly chipped teapots, and other old things. In her spare time she enjoys driving to the nearest creek to sit a while. If you were to visit her, she'd try to feed you cornbread.
Has anyone else been thinking about small towns lately? I have. Actually, I’ve been thinking about one little town in particular. That town is called Jasper. It’s small, it’s in my beloved Natural State, and it’s home to some of the best-preserved, most awe-inspiring natural spaces anywhere. Because it meets all of these criteria, it’s pretty much my dream town. I wanted all of you to think about this nature lover’s paradise too, so today’s article is all about Jasper.
Population: 453. Value to nature lovers: incalculable.
