|ARKANSAS Map and Symbols - USA|
Wednesday, May 28, 2014
The State of Arkansas map is my most recent addition to my map collection and it was sent by Kristy from Tennessee (that already sent me a map from her state). Although Tennessee and Arkansas are not that far away from each other she never went to "the Natural State". Thank you very much Kristy for my 14th map state (only three dozens missing). This postcard took 13 days to arrive!
Arkansas is a state located in the Southern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians. The state's diverse geography ranges from the mountainous regions of the Ozark and the Ouachita Mountains, which make up the U.S. Interior Highlands, to the densely forested land in the south known as the Arkansas Timberlands, to the eastern lowlands along the Mississippi River and the Arkansas Delta. Known as "the Natural State", the diverse regions of Arkansas offer residents and tourists a variety of opportunities for outdoor recreation. The capital and most populous city is Little Rock, located in the central portion of the state.
