|Mile High Swinging Bridge --as seen from the Blue Ridge Parkway|
We picked a beautiful, clear day ---but I must admit that it was an extremely cold and WINDY day when we were there. The temperature was in the low 30's ---but the wind made it feel much much colder. In fact, that is the coldest that I think I've been in a long, long time. We only had on our rain jackets ---and even with my hands in my pocket, they actually BURNED when I was out there... We loved it--but want to go back in better conditions!!!!!
There's so much to do there (Nature Museum, Gift Shop and Restaurant, FUDGE Shop (which I didn't even attempt to go into ), Animal Hibitats, Overlooks, and lots of Hiking Trails).... If you ever get a chance, visit Grandfather Mountain!!!!
Today, I'll only share photos of the BRIDGE ---and will share more from other areas in another blog post. Hope you enjoy the photos. Be sure to click on them for enlargements. Above is a picture we took of the Swinging Bridge from down on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
SINGING Bridge since, when the wind blows, the bridge 'sings' in the same way as a harmonica. We loved hearing it SING when we were there.
OH---did I mention that it was COLD that day????? ha ha ha
Have a fabulous weekend ---and welcome to DECEMBER tomorrow!!!! (Can you believe it?????) You had better not be naughty this month!!!! Santa is watching!!!! I will see you on Monday.
