Winter Wonderment: A frosty photo essay from our readers


A blizzard of beautiful submissions.

That’s what we experienced when we asked our readers to send in entries for our 2022 Arkansas Living calendar. Last year’s snow inspired a wintry mix of icy artistry.

With only three winter months to fill in our calendar, we wanted to find another way to showcase other “cool” submissions.

This photo essay, courtesy of our talented readers, represents a sampling of the “best in snow.”
