Oct. 24 Report - Grandfather Mountain


Katie CasellaOct. 24 Report - Grandfather Mountain

Oct. 24, 2013, Smoketree Lodge off of N.C. Highway 105.

The top peaks of Grandfather Mountain are coated in rime ice this morning as fog is freezing to the trees along the ridgeline. This photo was taken at Smoketree Lodge off of N.C. Highway 105 where fall color is still very bright.

While there are still many fall hues brightening the landscape of the High Country, the color is really developing along routes such as N.C. 181 from Morganton, U.S. 221 from Marion and U.S. 421 from Wilkesboro.
