The winds are changing and the nights are cooler so beautiful fall foliage in Mentone is just around the corner. Last week’s Harvest moon was spectacular. The weather is perfect on Lookout Mountain for hiking and sitting on the porch. Recent rains have given Little River more life so Desoto Falls is flowing. Activities to enjoy Mentone and the surrounding area are happening every day.
This week is DeKalb County’s local VFW agricultural fair in Fort Payne with rides, food and exhibits of local goods. On Saturday September 28th, a Geocaching 101 class will be taught at Desoto State Park for free at 9 a.m. See www.geocaching.com for all the caches in our area. True Adventure Sports is offering classes in rappelling, night hiking and ziplining for the more adventurous visitors.
