This is another photo taken at sunrise yesterday morning. I was on top of Grandfather Mountain . It was windy and cold, but not too cold. I was tempted to cross the Swinging Bridge, but chickened out this time. I was waiting for a photo op that sadly did not materialized within my time constraints. But what I did witness was extraordinary lighting, wild critters (including one crazy turkey) and fresh air. April may be considered a grey month up here in the mountains, but to me, it is anything but colorless. For those nearby, remember the month of April is Dollar Days at Grandfather Mountain. For a buck, you can hike the trails, see the wildlife and breathe the high life. Just ask yourself: When was the last time you crossed the Swinging Bridge?
