Blowing Rock Family Vacation

We never made reservations for the beach, and couldn't decide on what we really wanted to do this year. So when it was time to go and do SOMETHING, we decided to head for the mountains. It seemed like a refreshing get-away. It's been so hot this year.
This is Grandfather Mountain. It's beautiful and 1500 feet above sea level. It makes you want to pack your backpack and set out on a treck aross the Blue Ridge Mountains.
We stopped at Linville Caves. The kids loved it. Although I think Tyler had more fun throwing rocks in the stream than going into the caves.
Blind fish. They are fresh water trout and live in the dark. And I mean dark. You can't see your hand infront of your face. Very Cool!
It was one of the best vacations we have ever taken.
