Welcome to North Carolina!

Grandfather Mountain Tree – 4/7/2012

I took my Mom on a weekend trip to Blowing Rock, hitting several of the sites during the whirlwind trip! She had never been to Grandfather Mountain and that was one of the first places we visited. After the rains of the previous days, the sky was absolutely beautiful! This tree, as with most of the trees at the top are permanently bent due to the high winds that whip across the peak. Unverified accounts have winds as high as 200 mph, but those are unverified. Enjoy the photo. There will be more in the coming days.
