Oct. 25 Report - Grandfather Mountain


Katie CasellaOct. 25 Report - Grandfather Mountain

Oct. 25, 2013, Half Moon Overlook at Grandfather Mountain State Park.

A dusting of snow fell on Grandfather Mountain last night, and visitors today get the treat of experiencing fall and winter at the same time. This photo was taken at Half Moon Overlook, where the red mountain ash berries made a striking impact against the overcast skies.

This should be a great weekend in the High Country with lots of fun planned for little ghosts, princesses and pirates! Grandfather Mountain hosts Beary Scary Halloween on Saturday, and Beech Mountain and Blowing Rock also have Halloween festivals planned. Haunted Horn is also taking place in Boone both evenings this weekend.
