    Exploring Grandfather Mountain

    So my brother and I had been talking about hiking grandfather mountain for a while and we finally were able to pencil in a weekend. They headed up to Old NC 105 Thursday afternoon and hung out by the fire and explored the area a bit. I had to work and then came home to do dinner and put the little one to bed then rolled out for the campsite.

    I arrived around 1am, leveled the teardrop, talked a little **** with the guys and then went to bed. It was a chilly night on the ridge. We woke up to 13 degrees showing on my thermometer.

    Coleman made some eggs and bacon and I eventually crawled out of my bed around 7:30 and we had breakfast then packed up for some adventure.

    We made our way down old NC 105 and up to the Wilson creek area. We made a few stops to explore the river and good off.







    It was a little overcast but not raining or snowing so we were happy.

    We made our way through the Wilson creek area and stopped by the old abandoned mill town of Mortimer for a few ghost stories. There were plenty of trout in the deeper areas of the creek.



    We wandered around the old abandoned buildings






    Stopped in to say hey to the ladies at Betsy's old country store.

    Made our way toward the parkway via some creative traveling.

    Coleman had never been on the BRP so we took a short detour on the parkway over to the viaduct for a hike.

    Nice report, and good looking TJ. I love Wilson's Creek. I do a lot of backpacking and it's one of my favorite areas. Good fishing as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Woke up to some cold temps... all of our water froze... and my bananas froze solid


    We then made our way to the mile high bridge and over to the grandfather mountain trail.
