Exploring Arkansas May 2007

Coleman Quartz Mine, White Oak Lake State Park, Crowley's Ridge
It's one of the oldest and largest quartz crystal mines in Arkansas - the Coleman Quartz Mine north of Hot Springs - and it's where you and I can dig for our own treasure.  White Oak Lake State Park near Prescott offers abundant wildlife and hiking within the boundaries of the state's only state forest.  A new look at the unique geological formation known as Crowley's Ridge in eastern Arkansas can be explored at the Crowley's Ridge Nature Center in Jonesboro.  Episode concludes with a drive along Crowley's Ridge Parkway.
