Great Smoky Mountain Railway
We almost didn't get to take the train trip. When we made the reservation we requested the Wed trip. Checking in today we discovered that our reservation had been made for yesterday. :-( However,the people at the KOA were very nice and managed to get us on today's train. It was a 4 1/2 hour trip and the scenery was nice. We rode past a man made lake - Fontana Lake and through the Nantahala River Gorge where they go white water rafting. We drove through the river gorge yesterday when we went to Murphy NC but today we got to see the river from the opposite side. Tomorrow we will probably go into the Smoky Mountains National Park.
