On Saturday, the group toured Grand Father Mountain with the famous “Mile High” Swinging Bridge. The winds were blowing around 35mph (56kph) and the winds blew in hard. It was an adventure. By the way, they only close the bridge when the winds get above 55mph.
After conquering the bridge, we went to the Wildlife Habitat to see cougars (which no longer live in the wild on Grandfather Mountain), black bears, bald eagles, river otters and elk. These animals were all rescued and could no longer survive in the wild.
