Desoto State Park near Mentone, Alabama is a great getaway for me. I love visiting to do a little hiking or to picnic with my sweet wife. Being close to Mentone makes it a great getaway for a day. I always love the art shows held in the area throughout the year. The art scene there is incredible. A lot of artists reside around the area. Lookout Mountain seems to attract a lot of creative people.
Desoto State Park is a great place for the plein air painter searching for an inspiring location. You will find great views in every direction. I look forward to doing more on-location paintings myself in the park. If you see me out painting or gathering inspiration, stop to say hello and tell me you are following my art project.
Let’s hope the closure concerns for Desoto State Park never come to fruition. What a tragedy that would be. A place so beautiful should be the open for everyone to enjoy. Hopefully, legislators and public officials will see the actual value of such a magnificent landscape to the public and find the means to keep it open for future generations to enjoy. Contact your representatives and share your concern for one of the area’s most beautiful nature scenes.
