Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina is the highest peak in the Blue Ridge Mountain range. It is also the only private park in the world designated by UNESCO as an International Biosphere Reserve. Grandfather Mountain received this designation because of the sixteen different habitat communities that can be found on the mountain. The vegetation on some parts of the mountain has more in common with northern Canada than North Carolina.
We visited Grandfather Mountain on a beautiful but cold and windy day in November. The picture above shows the view from the first overlook on the road leading to the summit and the Mile High Swinging Bridge.
