Picture gallery[edit]

The pictures that are actually of GM should stay and be assimilated, but unless there is a "Wildlife" section added, the random photos of animals need to go. S. Dean Jameson 16:33, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

If you'd like to remove them it certainly wouldn't bother me, but technically they aren't random. I took, uploaded, and added both the Bald Eagle and the Otter photos, and both are residents of GM's animal habitat. Since the habitat is one of the park's featured attractions (in fact, there's not much else up there other than the view, the bridge, a restaurant, and a couple of gift shops) I thought the photos were relevant to the article - in much the same way that the Highland Games photo is. - Ken Thomas (talk) 16:57, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

State Park[edit]

Since Grandfather Mountain is now part of the North Carolina State Park system, I am proposing that this article be moved to Grandfather Mountain State Park which is now a redirect to this article. Thoughts? Dincher (talk) 14:46, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
