Julian Price Memorial Park together with adjacent Moses Cone Park form the largest contiguous acreage of recreational opportunities along the length of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Owned by Julian Price, an insurance executive with Jefferson Standard Life Insurance Company, the property was initially purchased to be the site of a company retreat. However, following an untimely death, his children donated the property and asked that Boone Fork Creek be dammed to create Price Lake in memoriam. The park consists of 4,300 acres with Julian Price Lake comprising 47 acres as a centerpiece.
This photograph was taken on the largest full moon of the year 2013--the perigee moon--in the early morning hours as the moon set over Grandfather Mountain and reflected in a calm and serene Price Lake just off the Blue Ridge Parkway.
