Landis TaylorOct. 15 Report - Grandfather Mountain

Oct. 15, 2013, View looking toward Grandfather Mountain.

The view from the top of Grandfather Mountain is gorgeous this morning, with low-lying clouds to our east and south. The surrounding landscape has really come alive with color this week, as illustrated in this photo looking toward Grandmother Mountain.

Fall color really seemed to pop yesterday evening after the overcast weather moved out of the area. This week and the coming weekend should be beautiful in the High Country. Colorful routes right now are Highway 105 from Boone to Linville, Highway 181 from Linville to Newland and Highway 321 from Boone to Blowing Rock.

For more information about visiting this location, go to North Carolina State Parks and Explore Boone Area.
