Those are nice pictures. In August I hiked Grandfather Mountain for two days from the Boone Fork Parking Area to the Mile High bridge and back, we did go down Profile Trail to Shanti springs to get water then back up. Camped out at the small campground at Calloway Gap, it got down to the high 30s that night.
We are the crazy people.
Most physical hike: Grandfather Mountain, NC. Aug 13.
