The lights I’m talking about are the ones that will wow you in Bentonville. The camera is the one I used to shoot the cover. And the action, well, it’s from the people who are driving to Northwest Arkansas to see the spectacular North Forest Trail, part of the fantastic Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. It’s the must-see exhibit of the state, and it’s all out of doors. Lucky for you, it is open until the spring.
As a reminder, don’t forget any of the state’s other destinations. Our Travel Editor Joe David Rice takes us to Lake Village this month which made us hungry for tamales. Writer Angela Forsyth delves into the state’s pursuit of tourism during these trying times. And we also get a glimpse at a huge commodity in the Natural State: duck hunting. It’s upon us, and Arkansas Game & Fish Commission is gearing up for a slightly different season.
This month our editor-at-large Lisa Fischer asks the question, “where does good health begin?” You might think your pristine low carb diet is the key or the way you only eat foods that begin with the letter “m.” Nope. Lisa finds out from a local physician and a food blogger that good health begins at home. In the kitchen. The recipes are easy and delicious and the information is worth a gander.
We love featuring the outstanding Arkansans in our FACES OF yearly feature. This is where our readers can find out who might be the face of gastroenterology or face of fillers or the many other categories we list. Check it out now.
By the time we went to print with the November issue of AY About You, the question my friends all have asked me is, “Is your tree up yet?” To quote my almost 14-year-old, “Duh.”
It took all the self control in the world to resist putting it up before Halloween, which, I admit, I have done before. But not this year. And I forgot why I didn’t.
Enjoy November. See you in December. We have a great issue in the works.
