Mr. Morton is still alive on the mountain …

While attending one of the 60th anniversary events for Grandfather Mountain’s swinging bridge, both of Mr. Hugh Morton’s daughters were there.

Catherine (Morton) said to me, “Houck, with your being here with your camera, I feel like my dad  never left the mountain.”

With an instant lump in my throat, and a tear in my eye, I said, “Catherine, with you and your sister, Judy, looking so much like your dad and being present at the same time, I feel that he hasn’t left the mountain either.”
