We were up early despite staying up so late! I was dino dancing while Grandma and Grandmpa got cleaned up.
We drove out to Grandfather Mountian, about 2 hours away. I got a little car sick but never threw up. After a quick lunch we went out to see the animals. I loved the bears, otters, deer, and other things we found. We saw chipmunks, insects galore, 2 snakes and more bugs!
We did the Jr. Ranger activity and earner our Grandfather Mountain badges.
I clmbed everywhere that Mommy didn’t stop me!
Even under a 4000 ton, thats 8,000,000 pounds, boulder.
We turned into bears!
I learned the trees grow funny at the top. The winds must be dominating from one direction. The trees don’t grow tall. It looks like a bonsai villiage!
Checking out the vistas!
Enjoying my Grandma Jo time.
At the 1 mile high mark on the swinging suspension bridge.
I made it across!
WHAT a view!
Grandma Jo made it to the top. I ran and kept getting yelled at by Mom to slow down. I screamed back that I was an expert rock runner just as I tripped and fell. I slowed down then.
After the mountain we panned for gems in Linville.
Even Grandpa Howie helped out. He was in charge of the shovel.
