March Madness in Mentone

Spring is officially here on Lookout Mountain in Mentone with wildflowers beginning to show their beauty and birds making their nests.  We had a wonderful sunny weekend that was great for hiking to all the waterfalls and exploring trails at DeSoto State Park.  Yet, this morning we woke up to snow again.  All day it has been snowing in Mentone and covering our daffodils and hyacinths.  Tomorrow, it will head back to the 60's and be ideal for a bike ride. Just like Kansas and others have shown us, you never know what to expect during March Madness, even in Northeast Alabama.  Mentone's unique shops and restaurants always have a surprise for visitors so come see us soon.
