STAFF PHOTO BEN GOFF Larry Day picks up travel brochures on Arkansas attractions while making a coffee stop at the Arkansas Welcome Center on U.S. Highway 71 in Bella Vista on Tuesday December 24, 2013. Day and his wife were driving their motor coach from their home in Peoria, IL, to visit family in Oklahoma for the holidays before traveling to the Rio Grande valley in Texas for the winter.
