Skip SicklerOct. 16 Report - Grandfather Mountain

Oct. 16, 2013, View of the Linn Cove Viaduct.

The sun rises on another beautiful day in the High Country as some of the first light shines on the Linn Cove Viaduct. This engineering marvel winds its way around Grandfather Mountain at milepost 304 of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The Grandfather Mountain attraction and Grandfather Mountain State Park are not affected by the national government shutdown and remain open to visitors. While facilities along the Blue Ridge Parkway are closed, the road remains open and is a great place to see fall color.
