6:30 a.m. Sunrise — Early Bird Special Doorbuster — No, you won’t be fighting crowds at the mall to save a few bucks on a new television or waiting in line in the early hours of the morning to snag some “doorbuster” special…

This Black Friday, set your alarm to get out of bed early and join a Park Ranger to enjoy sunrise over Roan Mountain. No stress, no crowds, no over-hyped commercialization of your holiday weekend in an effort to make you spend more money. Just the peace and tranquility provided by observing a quiet moment of beauty in nature.

Meet a Park Ranger at the Miller Farmstead Entrance Gate just off Highway 143 in Roan Mountain State Park at 6:30 a.m. to caravan to the Farmstead Overlook for sunrise viewing. Please dress in warm layers. You may bring a camp chair and/or blankets if you choose. This program will be canceled in case of bad weather. Meet at the Farmstead Gate.
