Category Archives: Bella Vista


Mandy and Will tied the knot last Saturday in beautiful Bella Vista. The bridesmaids were in Truffle and Cream. (You know I love a dress color with chocolate in the name.)

Bella Vista is located just north of Bentonville in the Ozark Mountains.
The drive there on 540 is a fest for the eyes and much different from the the old Highway 71 that I remember traveling as a kid when we went to Fayetteville.
71 was always a challenging and breathtaking drive. 540 has taken the major traffic off charming old 71 so that you can enjoy the drive through the Boston Mountain area, not worrying that a semi will come around a hairpin curve and squish you. Do you remember the old tower on Mount Gaylor? It’s not there anymore. You could see forever from up there.
