The fall color is coming in nicely at the Linn Cove Viaduct and will continue to do so this weekend.  The area around Grandfather Mountain is peaking right now down to about 4,000 feet with a more widespread peak expected next weekend for the portions of the region above 3,000 feet.  (Photo by Monty Combs)

This weekend is Autumn at Oz on Beech Mountain (another high elevation with great color right now).  Other weekend events include the Ghost Train Halloween Festival at Tweetsie Railroad, the Brushy Mountain Apple Festival in North Wilkesboro and Art in the Park in Blowing Rock.  For more information on area events or to plan a trip to the NC High Country please visit www.mountainsofnc.com.

  • Grandfather Mountain you're big and you're high.  It seems that your shoulders help to hold up the sky.  I will never forget you till the day that I die.   Oh I will keep those old memories alive.

    If you have never been there a beauty so wild and so rare, it could even rival a rose.  And on a clear day from the top of his head, you can see clear to Charlotte below.
