Part 2: Left the campgrounds and drove to Grandfather Mountain State Park to hike to The Mile High Swinging Bridge. Ended up extending our hike by parking in the wrong parking lot lower down. Hence our hike turned from a .4 trail hike into a 1 1/2 mile, elevation change of 1716ft, rugged hike up hill and then the trail. Was worth it to cross the bridge even if we did have to then hike that 1 1/2 miles back down. Views were breathtaking! #grandfathermountainstatepark #grandfathermountain #milehigh #mountaintrails #hiking #getoutdoors #blueridgemountains #dahladventures #slowandsteadywinstherace #elevation #mileup

"Called Tanawha ("fabulous bird" or "eagle") by the Cherokee Indians, the mountain acquired the name "Grandfather" from early settlers who saw the face of an old man's profile in the outline of the peaks against the sky." NCPedia.org

Today I was reminded of the wisdom of Grandfather Mountain. I chose to do one of the steepest hikes I’ve ever endeavored, alone, up a local mountain ridge. I had so many thoughts in these two hours. More than will fit here. Below, I’ve outlined some of them. • My life lately has felt like the ascent; barely finding a foot hold, at times it was so steep my toes almost touched my knees. Relying on my inner drive, wisdom, and determination were the only things that kept me from quitting. At some points I couldn’t catch my breath, as the elevation rose and the incline persisted. Yet I pressed on, to find a beautiful view: the ocean, a raven circling above me, and wildlife all around. I sat and thought for a while. I was told that the only reason for such a struggle is self neglect. Emotional, physical, somewhat even mental. Not taking the time to breathe. Not taking the time to build myself up. Not taking the time to LOOK UP at the magnificent world around me. Not TRUSTING myself to make it. And thinking that I must save the life hikers around me, when all I can save is myself. The descent brought relief. Though it was scary at times and I relied entirely upon the jugged rocks to keep me from falling. I know I left a massive part of my recent struggles behind, on my Grandfather, saying, “Here, please take this from me, I can’t carry it anymore.” And he answered, “With joy, child, and go lighter.” • Sigh. What a gift, to simply surrender. To give over that which we can no longer carry, and know our ancestors and earth will take it from us. #grandfathermountain #tearsinthedirt #climb #letgo #heavy #unpack #release #goddess #iamthepriestess #bellamundoshaman #bellamundoliving

when Michael helps me at pop ups, without fail an older gentleman will ask ‘which one is worthy and which one is badass?’ We’re so used to the joke that I just say ‘I like to think I’m the badass.’ In reality, Michael’s both and we all know that. Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. There’s no reason not to spend a day showing extra special love to others!

There’s a whole world out there and I feel like now, more than ever, it’s calling, no, yelling with all its might, for me to come explore it. For the longest time, I was content with being settled. I had the house, the husband, the pets, the stability. Then, my safe, stable world got turned upside down. At the time, I didn’t know why the heck I had to go through all of that. But now, now I think part of it was God, the universe, everything and everybody, forcing my life to change because I am meant to see more. I am meant to do more. I am meant to be more than I was limiting myself to. I realize that all of that chaos and doors closing on parts of my life was actually just so the best part could actually begin. I hear you, World. I’m coming. . . . . . . . #brianadaylewandering #brianadayle _____________________________________________ #traveldeeper #tasteintravel #mytinyatlas #dametraveler #lonelyplanet #darlingescapes #doyoutravel #travelawesome #traveltheworld  #traveladdict #postcardsfromtheworld #travelandlife #athomeintheworld #travelpics #travelblogger #travelblog #travelbug #passportready #travelphoto #letsgoeverywhere #travelstroke #igtravel #northcarolina #grandfathermountain #ncmountains #visitnc #onlyinnorthcarolina #mountainviews

📷 . Happy Valentine’s Day 🥰 . Swipe for full view 👉🏻 . One of our highlights of visiting the North Carolina High Country is to explore Grandfather Mountain State Park and to ride the Linn Cove Viaduct on the Blue Ridge Parkway. . Commenced in 1979, the project proved quite a delicate feat as engineers and architects, along with environmentalists worked to achieve a design that would not harm and also protect the delicate natural habitat surrounding Grandfather Mountain⛰ . Upon its completion in the mid 1980's, the Linn Cove Viaduct has been recognized as an architectural marvel, marking the final link of the Blue Ridge Parkway, connecting Shenandoah National Park to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park 🌲 . It has become a signature attraction for tourists and photographers alike, and is evidence, in my opinion, of what human hard work and ingenuity can achieve . Thank you for stopping by to look, and I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's weekend ❤️ . #grandfathermountain #blueridgenps #usinterior #blueridgeparkway #linncoveviaduct #blueridgemoments #blueridgeoutdoors #ncoutdoors #appalachian_explorers #southernlivingmag #ourstatemag #wncmagazine #828isgreat #naturalnorthcarolina #theappalachianlife #booneview #ncstateparks #visitnc #scenicnc #romanticasheville #outaboutnc #ncweekend #discover_carolinas #playonnc #grandfathermtn #trailful #inspireappalachia #ncfalloffame #theblueridgers #bestofthetarheelstate

Flashback Flex Friday! You have been assigned this mountain because you are the only one who can climb it. When you’re at the bottom, it will seem impossible to get to the top but you’ll find that if you just keep putting one foot in front of the other.. you can reach it. It won’t be easy. There will be sweat and tears, there will be pain and exhaustion, and you WILL want to quit. But I promise that it will all be worth it. Once you reach the top, you will see the World before you and know that you can accomplish anything. #iam1stphorm #grandfathermountain #milehigh #phlexfriday #flexfriday
