Fall is Arriving in North Carolina

This October, see more than fall foliage in Highlands & Lake Toxaway, North Carolina.

From mid-October to early November, just off Highway 64 west of Cashiers, a giant bear traverses the canvas of the colorful Whiteside Mountain.

Okay, maybe not a giant bear—but the shadow of one, in a phenomenon that draws crowds to the Highlands area each autumn.

The bear, which appears between 5:30 and 6:15PM, crosses over Whiteside Mountain and can be seen from the Rhodes Big View Overlook. Stay with us in Lake Toxaway or Highlands, North Carolina in October to make the quick trip down I-64 to see the Shadow of the Bear!
