With longer days and warmer temperatures in tow, spring is here in full force, and not even the April showers can slow down Arkansans chomping at the bit to get outside.

That, plus a year of social-distancing and Earth Day on April 22 have me particularly thankful to live in a place with so much natural beauty to explore. But when I can't get out and roam, or when I need some inspiration for the next trail, I head, of course, to Instagram.

If you're looking to do a little Natural State daydreaming yourself, give these accounts a follow.


@arkansasstateparks

This one's a given. As the official outdoors account of the Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage and Tourism, followers can expect shots of some of the state's most-loved sites from the folks who know it best.

They also share plenty of city love on @arkansas, so check that out as well.


@kevinwaynesworld

Texas transplant Kevin Reavis now calls Little Rock home and, from the looks of his feed, spends much of his free time exploring and capturing all the scenic views his adopted home state has to offer.


@arkietravels

While Sarah and Paul Heer are big-time lovers of the outdoors, the husband and wife duo behind this account also share local restaurants, museums and activities on their adventures across The Natural State.


@arkansas.wanderlust

This list wouldn't be complete without the account titled exactly what we're looking for. Photographer David Dedman shares gorgeous shots from around the state, but mostly in the wilds of northwest Arkansas.


BONUS: If you want a mix from all corners of The Natural State, check out @arkansastopspots and @wonderfularkansas which curate posts submitted from Arkansans statewide.
