  • My family and I (including our 4 year old son, our 14 year old daughter, and our 1 year old) visited Grandfather Mountain the day after Christmas. The weather was beautiful and the view was amazing. Walking across the mile high bridge and standing on the peak was a magical moment for me and my children that I will keep in my mind as one of those moments that helps get you through the rest of your less magical days.
