Grayson Highlands in the Spring
Memorial Day the hubby and I took a leisurely drive up to Grayson Highlands. I visited Grayson Highlands in March in search of wild ponies. No ponies and nothing was in bloom. So, I went searching for the ponies again. Spoiler alert: I still didn't see the ponies. But, everything was green, lush, and beautiful.
Our drive took us around Watauga Lake and through Johnson County. There's a huge Italian-style villa and vineyard, with a winery near by.
Not all of the park was open in March. Deanna and I missed out on this beautiful spot with another overlook.
I got down on the ground to take a picture of the flowers and found this little inch worm! It's not the best photo, but I like him!
I highly recommend the visitor center at Grayson Highlands. They had several nice displays. I loved this saw mill blade.
