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.

  • I have been coming to Grandfather Mountain since I was a small child. The change of seasons is more markedly pronounced than anywhere else I've ever been. Every season has it's own sights and smells and of course brings you a different pleasurable sensation of feelings every time.
