Wow, very exciting! I too like the hard to get to spots. Very Nice.

I love it!  A bit of a long drive for me to get up there but we do now and then!  Keep up the beautiful work.

Martha, I love the Crest Trail, which navigates along the ridge of Grandfather.  It is 2.4 miles from the swinging bridge to Callaway Peak and I have never gone the whole way, maybe only 1/2.  There are many cables and ladders along the way and it would are lot easier without a backpack of painting gear food and water.  I would recommend trying it with a sketch book first.  It is $20 per person to drive up to the swinging bridge which is where I start.  There are other ways up that are free but a much longer and strenuous trip.  You and Will need to go up sometime, it is an epic experience, make sure the weather is good when you try it as Grandfather attracts clouds.

Lovely view, lovely painting!  Was the path up as challenging as it looks from the photo?
