Grandfather Mountain

After the fair Saturday we woke up amazingly early Sunday morning for a day at Grandfather Mountain. We reached the Blue Ridge Parkway at sunrise.

After a detour off the Blue Ridge we finally arrived in Linville at the Grandfather Mountain Visitor Center.

I love the huge windows in the lobby.

After a quick tour of the Nature Museum and gift shop Xander was ready to start the hike!

It wasn't long until we could see the swinging bridge above.

And the views were amazing!

I'd love to know what was on his mind this high up.

Predictable Xander - climb up a mountain to a peak of more than 5,200 feet with the beautiful fall colors and his favorite part of the day is the construction at the gift shop!

Check back soon for Halloween photos!
