HERE. Several people commented about it being cold there that day... To tell you the truth, I cannot remember a time when I was any colder than I was that day on top of that mountain.... It was unbelievably cold.
Today I will show you more from that trip. Above is a picture of the top of the mountain (where we went)---from below, as we were driving up there.
Be sure to click on the photos to see enlargements.
I had to take this picture of George with "MILDRED" the Bear. Mildred came to the Grandfather Mountain area about 1968. She loved it there --and raised her 'family' while there. The bears there now are all descendents of Mildred....
There was also a Mildred Grill and a FUDGE Shop..... We had our lunch in the car --so we didn't visit the grill, AND I just couldn't get anywhere near that Fudge Shop.... TOO tempting!!!!! ha
After leaving the Visitor Center (Nature Museum), we then continued up the mountain to see the Mile High Swinging Bridge (shown in Part I).
If you ever get to the mountains of North Carolina, be sure and check out Grandfather Mountain. We hope to go back sometime and do some hiking. (All of the hiking trails were closed when we were there due to snow on the trails.)
Have a fabulous day.
