Duration: 0:24:26

Description: After being a general store, post office and a hotel..a 1901 building in Osage is now a pottery shop where folks can watch the owners at work, creating quality clayworks. At the National Park Aquarium in Hot Springs you can get up close with piranha and a 400-volt catfish -- just to name a couple of the oddities there. Pysanky is an ancient Ukrainian egg art form that uses beeswax and dyes. A Hot Springs woman is a master at it and has earned the title-- an Arkansas Living Treasure. Palarm Creek Waterfowl Rest Area within the Bell Slough Wildlife Management Area near Mayflower is a haven for birdwatchers during the winter months.
