Oh, Arkansas!

You know what Arkansas looks like?  Arkansas looks like Louisiana if you replace all the water with crops.  Someone was nice enough to put a cache at a rest stop going into Arkansas (or coming into Texas, depending on your point of view [the cache owner named it based on this {I also wonder why I like nested parentheticals so much}]).
