  • I really enjoyed the walk and visit to Grandfather Mountain. The most interesting was the Swinging bridge because I noticed it was supported by my company's equipment. My company (Crosby/Lebus) make equipment for lifting, towing, tying down, and hauling. Our components are used on the bridge for holding the riggings. You used the best and American Made. Just to let you know I really enjoyed the view.
