At Grandfather Mountain we walked across the famous Mile High over 5,280 ft. bridge ... suspended above the valley .... kind of nervous, but we did it. A beautiful day with little wind made it the perfect outing.
Neither of us had been to this area before, so we were in awe of this small university town - Appalachian State College and a town crawling with students, art, music, food, and funky clothes. I even trusted the process and had my hair cut and colored at Shear Shakti!!!! The ocean and coastal air was calling me though, and I was ready to leave the mountains and begin heading east and some south :) ..... home was the light at the end of the tunnel after almost a month of travel...I am getting road weary. The thing is, we want to see it while we are here, because we probably won't get back this way for a while, so we try to see cities and areas that we wouldn't have access to over a weekend or so. Looking at the map, and bypassing Raleigh due to lack of campgrounds, we headed to Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach, NC. grandfather.com/
