Downtown Big Fork in the Winter
Here Highway 8 passes through Big Fork going west toward Mena. All the original business buildings were torn down and only residences exist today. There is one little store, "The Big Fork Mall", built in modern times, that can provide a candy bar and cold pop to passers-by.
Photo was taken by Prof. & Geologist Samuel Calvin from the University of Iowa. Click on the photo to visit a gallery of his other photos and more information. Prof. Calvin also took photos of various rock formations east of Mena, Arkansas
