The Blowing Rock
The Blowing Rock Attraction NC is exactly the place that the Village of Blowing Rock where you can find it, is named after. It is an unusual rock formation that overlooks the Johns River Gorge just off the Blue Ridge Parkway NC. Many years ago, before settlers ever arrived, American Indian tribes fought over the hunting grounds in and around locations in Watauga County. According to Native American legend, the Catawba and Cherokee tribes were warring and two lovers, who each belonged to one of the tribes, were walking near the rocks when the young warrior received notification that his tribe was going to battle. The young Indian maiden urged her lover not to go and he became to confused as to what to do and torn that he threw himself over the rock into the gorge below.
The young woman called out and prayed to the Great Spirit to return her lover and all of a sudden a great gust of wind blew the young warrior back to the top of the rocks. Today, visitors to the Blowing Rock Attraction can walk out atop the observation deck and see excellent views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Johns River Gorge. Most often remark at the strange, high wind pattern that exists atop this location. The views jut out 1,500 feet above the gorge and its easy to believe the ancient story that is still told at the Blowing Rock Attraction.
