  • Last summer I returned to Grandfather Mountain after a more than 40 year absence and the return trip was even more magical than the initial trip. I was able to appreciate the majestic views of nature and all it's splendor with my grown son and my mother. We spent an adventure-filled day stopping at every spot mentioned on the CD and enjoyed a great deal of time in the animal habitats, especially the bears. My son's nickname is Bear, and frankly he resembles at least one of Grandfather Mountain's bears. We went up to the top by car since the hike was a little tough for my mom, however, she and my son crossed the Mile High Swinging Bridge together while I recorded their experience. Upon their return I crossed solo and was able to appreciate the views from the bridge and mentally check "GM Mile high Bridge" off my bucket list. My hope is to be able to visit Grandfather Mountain as often as possible and during every colorful season of the year to watch Mother Nature show off one of her greatest treasures.
