Ever-distinctive mountain ash berries shine bright red atop Grandfather Mountain. With fall color at its peak in the High Country, Grandfather Mountain is expecting a busy weekend. To beat the lines and avoid a wait, guests are encouraged to purchase their tickets online at https://goo.gl/H4iLBm, which grants them access to a priority lane through a side entrance to the park. Photo by Skip Sickler | Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation
