I really enjoy Claires Share Your Desktop challenge as it lets me share some of my photography, And I can share some of my late Dads photography as well, And this Month I have Chosen one to have as my desktop that remind me of where I come from, where my roots are.
The Mellon Store is located in Mtn. View Arkansas, Mtn. View is a sleepy little town located in the North Central part of the State deep in the gorgeous Ozark Mountains, My Grandmothers (My Dads Mom) side of the family has been there since the early 1800s. and there is still plenty of my relatives (or rather Kin as they are called down there) in Mountain View and scattered around Stone County.
My Dad took this photo on one of his visits back to see family in May 1997.
So Here is my desktop.
