Grand Father Mountain, North Carolina

In this trip we combined business and pleasure. We had a computer deal going on and it was on our way that's why we just stop by with our dogs Rocky and Bullwinkle. Grandfather Mountain is the highest peak in the Blue Ridge Mountain range (elevation 5,964 ft). My first time to be able to go to such high elevation. The Mountain is privately owned and is operated as a scenic travel attraction a globally recognized nature preserve. One ticket price includes everything.

The Mile High Swinging Bridge, was pretty cool with the 228-foot suspension bridge spans an 80-foot chasm at more than one mile in elevation. and was built to give visitors easy access to the breath-taking view from Grandfather Mountain's Linville Peak. Even though access requires climbing 50 stairs to reach the level of the Swinging Bridge.
