Monty CombsOct. 18 Report - Grandfather Mountain

Oct. 18, 2013, A leaf peeper stops to take a photo along the bridge over Green Mountain Creek on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Milepost 300.

The section of the Blue Ridge Parkway from Blowing Rock to Grandfather Mountain continues to be a beautiful route. This weekend will be a great one in the High Country with the Valle Country Fair in Valle Crucis on Saturday and the Woolly Worm Festival in downtown Banner Elk Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will be chilly this weekend, so pack a jacket in the car for your trip!
