Back in November, Sam, Finn, and I along with my sister Stephanie went for a day trip to DeSoto State Park, Little River Canyon, Mentone AL and went for a scenic drive. We started off the trip in Mentone, AL and ate at the Wildflower Cafe. Mentone is a super cute town with lots of artsy stores. I've been a couple times and I love eating at Wildflower Cafe whenever I'm in Mentone.
DeSoto State Park and Falls were beautiful in the fall! DeSoto State Park was named at Hernando de Soto who visited Alabama in 1540.
Finn was not having a good photo day. Too many distractions.
I played around with the shutter speed of my camera to get different images of the Falls. I'm not sure which one I like best. What do you think?
After leaving DeSoto State Park, we drove to Little River Canyon. Little River Canyon is said to be the Grand Canyon of the South because it's the deepest canyon east of the Mississippi.
Little River Falls
After we saw the main falls of Little River Canyon, we drove along the entire canyon that had numerous scenic spots to pull off the road.
This was one of my favorite spots: Mushroom Rock.

He might not look like it from this photo, but Finn loves his Aunt Stephanie!
We ended our trip at Sallie Howard Memorial Chapel, which is a church built into a huge boulder. I've lived in Alabama my whole life and I didn't even know this place existed until I saw it on Pinterest!
This was Finn's time in church
