We took a trip to Grandfather Mountain last week. I wanted to see the new Wilson Center.
We also wanted to see the animals in their habitat-mimicking enclosures.
There are Bald Eagles and cougars(not pictured). Also otters, elk and black bear.
We have a favorite picnic spot with a great view.
I took my eyes off my child for one second and look where I find him!
The Mile High Swinging Bridge is a big draw for Grandfather Mountain.
The twisting road up was the site of a scene in the Forrest Gump movie.
I hiked all over this mountain as a teenager. It requires grit. My dad was an avid hiker.
If you are craven some adventure, you may want to swing by Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina.
