05.10.15 – Part Two Mountain View City Park

Sunday, May 10, 2015, Part Two– We learned some sad news upon arriving back in Mountain View this trip. The man we just loved who owned Mellon’s Country Store, Pappy Mellon, has retired. We looked forward so much to seeing him again and sitting a spell visiting like we did before. The place is exactly the same but he’s not around spreading his Arkansas charm any longer.

We stopped at Mellon’s Country Store on Saturday and picked up some cinnamon hard candies for Chip and Madisyn and a bag for us. Here’s some pictures of the unique things they have there and how quaint it is out front.  The “stool sample” made me laugh out loud in the store!

We went on into town to get a feel for where things we want to see are located. We saw signs that showed the City Park was this way so we followed the sign and passed in front of the park thinking it wasn’t too much. We turned around and went back, pulling in towards the back. What we found there was amazing. This place has nooks and crannies filled with beauty you can’t imagine. The pictures below are of the amphitheater there at the back of the park. You enter it from the street level and walk down many stone steps to where the audience would sit. In front of that is a beautiful creek and waterfall running under the bridge. Walking across the bridge takes you to where the performances were held. It was all an incredible sight!

Ya’ll have a wonderful Sunday and come back now, ya’ hear!
