Grandfather Mountain, Mountains, Nature
A color slide showing several houses alongside a dirt road in the mountains. Grandfather Mountain, with its distinctive profile, is visible in the center background. Grandfather Mountain became a major tourist destination in 1952, when landowner Hugh Morton built an improved road to the summit, as well as a "Mile-High Swinging Bridge." A handwritten notation on the front of the slide reads: "Grandfather Mtn." Grandfather Mountain lies along the border of Watauga, Caldwell, and Avery County.
