Going to the mountains is one of my favorite things to do and Grandfather Mountain (which we visited a few years ago too) offers some amazing views.

Halfway up the mountain is where they have their little museum, animal habitats, gift shop, etc. (They've added a fudge shop since our visit a few years ago. I enjoyed the last of my yummy purchase while working on this post!)
|You would have thought Grant would be excited about the bears. But|
there was a squirrel roaming around the pen and he was much
more interested in alerting everyone to it's presence.
|This could have been a nice picture if the camera hadn't |
decided to focus elsewhere.
|The otters were entertaining until they decided to hide |
themselves away in that trash can.
|Waiting patiently for them to come out. (They didn't.)|
They also have deer but they were too far away to get a decent picture.
After seeing the animals, I hit the fudge shop where Grant immediately spotted the chocolate & sprinkle coated marshmallows.

the perfect place to munch on his treat.
