I trust this email finds you rested from your weekend and headed back to work knowing that the rain, which is needed, is just here for a few days.
Last week I was able to take off, at the invitation of a dear friend, Ms. Laura Ragland, and head up to Mentone, Al for a day trip of sightseeing atop Lookout Mountain. To me the area is best known for the Little River Canyon, Desoto Park and the many waterfalls along the canyon. I have visited numerous times and always take the driving route when I venture over to Atlanta. There are two waterfalls in the area that are picture perfect, Desoto Falls and Little River Falls, both of which are extremely majestic when the water is running. The optimum time for viewing the waterfalls is late winter and early spring but anytime is a good time. And in the fall, the colors are just spectacular.
The primary purpose, for the day trip was to get out of “dodge and get in amongst them!” Laura had heard of the Wildflower Café and put that on the agenda for lunch. It was the perfect stop for two “weary and hungry travelers” as a wood carving of two bears greets you. In addition to the café (YUM – try the sweet potato biscuits) we stopped at St. Josephs on the Mountain with it’s beautiful stained glass windows and then, the Sallie Howard Memorial Baptist Church which is connected / built around a boulder. It is amazing site to see from the inside, which as the sign says is always open for all. The final piece of the trip was to travel down the canyon ridge road and come face to face with a huge boulder that splits the highway. All and all, a great day in the country!!!! If you have never been up to Little River Canyon, you should plan a day trip to see the wonderful sites and do not forget, Wildflower Café. Just get there early!!!!
