  • Everyone needs to wash their spirit clean where nature heals and gives strength to both body and soul. Grandfather Mountain has been a place that has helped me reconnect with nature every time I hike his trails. I can feel him whispering to me each visit, or while I'm just sitting on the side of the mountain seeking nothing but a cool breeze and the quiet he offers. I raised my two children on those trails, teaching them we are just caretakers of this wonderful place and it must be protected for the generations that follow. This place is special and GM never lets me down. We must continue to protect this sacred place and be sure that 100 years from now, all his beauty remains the same for those who follow.
