More scenic grandeur from the road leading up Grandfather Mountain.
A road trip tid-bit: Many folks think all of the scenic beauty is along the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is NOT the only game in town! The pros are, of course, the scenic overlook pull-outs in which you can get off the main road for photo opportunites. However Route 221, which parallels the Parkway for the most part (and where the entrance lies to Grandfather Mountain) is just as wondrous and stunning. No pull-outs, but you learn to find a way.
