These girls were dancing at the Highland Games held at Grandfather Mountain near Asheville, North Carolina. Because most of my ancestors were from the British Isles (Scotland, Ireland, and England), I was excited to attend those Highland Games about forty years ago. Now look at what my brother posted on Facebook today.
The Scottish Highlands and the Appalachians are the same mountain range, once connected. Remnants of this massive mountain range include the Appalachian Mountains of North America, the Scottish Highlands, Ireland, parts of Greenland and Scandinavia, and the Little Atlas of Morocco.
