As you guys know we took a family trip to the mountains as the beginning of the week. We all had a blast and especially N. He asked so many questions and made so many great comments. I'm loving this age with him. So with us being up there all week I'm doing a mountain edition of the Friday Phone Dump with Jenn from Ramblings of a Suburban Mom.
First up was Grandfather Mountain and the Mile High Swinging Bridge. Grandfather Mountain was really cool and once you pay and enter they give you a cd to listen to as you drive through. Random fact is that one of the running scenes in Forrest Gump was filmed there ;) This bridge was awesome and eventhough its a mile above sea level its only about 80ft above the ground below so not too bad. It was too much for some people up there though.
On the other side of the bridge you could climb out to the peek and look out. The picture on the left is me zoomed in and the top right is no zoom. It was pretty far out there but N loved it. C and I just waited at the end of the bridge. ;)
After the bridge M and the boys hiked down the side of the mountain to the next parking area. I drove down to it and then walked in a ways to meet them. N loved hiking and even C got in on it for awhile but M did have to carry him alot of the way.
That rock you see in the background is the peek that M and N were on. We stopped a little farther down to take a couple pictures and look we managed to get all of us in one of them. That so rarely happens.
The next day we stopped at The Blowing Rock and M had to climb that one too. We missed the best leaf color changing by a week or so but it was still beautiful. I'll leave you today with a couple landscape porn pictures. It is beautiful up there.
I hope you all have a good weekend.
