Skip SicklerOct. 6 Report - Grandfather Mountain

Oct. 6, 2013, Blue Ridge Parkway bridge at milepost 316.5.

Spotty color is popping along the Linville River near Linville Falls. This photo was taken from a Blue Ridge Parkway bridge at milepost 316.5.

The Grandfather Mountain attraction and Grandfather Mountain State Park are not affected by the federal government shutdown and remain open to visitors. While facilities along the Blue Ridge Parkway are closed, the road remains open and is already becoming an ideal place to see fall color, especially between Grandfather Mountain and Blowing Rock. The Linville Falls visitor center is not open, but visitors are still able to access the falls.
