Grandfather Mountain Road Trip

Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina is a magical place. It can be beautiful and terrifying all at the same time. Grandfather Mountain is probably most famous for its "Mile High Suspension Bridge".  If you are scared of heights it can be most intimidating to cross the swaying bridge.  On our trip the winds, 30 mph gusting to 45, were making the bridge sing! We giggled so hard as we tried just to stand up straight.

At the original location for the observation deck is a small parking lot and a few picnic tables. This makes a great place to stop and have lunch.

Grandfather Mountain has a small collection of animals. While we were there several of the areas were closed for upgrades.  They have eagles, bears, cougar, otters, and soon they will have elk.

Our trip to Grandfather Mountain is so far our favorite journey for 2017.  We had so much fun playing and bonding as a couple.
