Grandfather Mountain

by Azusa Yamashita
(Koenji, Suginami, Tokyo )

Grandfather Mountain is a mountain and state park near Linville, North Carolina. It has been an amazing place for hundreds of millions of years. At 5,946 feet (1,818 m), it is the highest peak on the eastern escarpment of the Blue Ridge Mountains, one of the major chains of the Appalachian Mountains.

So it is a scenic travel attraction and a globally recognized nature preserve. And anyone who visits Grandfather Mountain discovers a place that inspires awe through natural wonders.

In the May before last, I went there for sightseeing with my family. When I climbed up that mountain, I felt wonderful nature. I was in high spirits and surveyed the view. "What a beautiful view! I have never looked at such a beautiful view!" I exclaimed.

But my sister was terrified of climbing, because she has a fear of height! We think it’s important for everyone to experience the wonder that can be found here, but also to respect the nature and geology that make it so wonderful.
