    Got up early and started off for Grandfather Mtn. First we walked around the mile high bridge before starting the hike to McCrea Peak. I hate to admit that it wasn't quite a mile, but it was challenging. Pictures 2 thru 6 is taken at the bridge. Pic 6 shows the parking lot and where the trail starts on the platform. Pic 7 is the start of the trail. The blue blaze can be seen painted on the rock. I keep the pictures in order as we went up. 20180629_072726.jpeg 20180629_102013.jpeg 20180629_102125.jpeg 20180629_102526.jpeg 20180629_102610.jpeg 20180629_102631.jpeg 20180629_103116.jpeg 20180629_104809.jpeg

    More. The 4th pic is looking up at McCrea point. 20180629_115901.jpeg I don't want to hear any fat jokes either. 20180629_112004.jpeg this was maybe the last level spot. It starts to get brutal after this. Stay tuned got a few more. 20180629_105116.jpegView attachment 4761 20180629_110140.jpeg 20180629_110006.jpeg 20180629_110943.jpeg 20180629_111053.jpeg 20180629_111343.jpeg 20180629_111641.jpeg 20180629_112240.jpeg 20180629_112412.jpeg 20180629_112937.jpeg 20180629_113134.jpeg 20180629_113602.jpeg 20180629_113757.jpeg 20180629_113920.jpeg

    Last one. We climbing back down. Walked up on a snake, some type of non-venomous snake. Had its head stuck down in a crack in the rock. It zipped on off after my wife touched it's tail. I hope you enjoyed the pictures. 20180629_123601.jpegView attachment 4791 20180629_122805.jpegView attachment 4793 20180629_102449.jpeg
