Blue Ridge Scenic Railway

Tuesday we rode the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway from Blue Ridge, GA to McCaysvilleGA/Copperhill, TN. There was nothing spectacular to see but it was a pleasant ride. We were definitely not impressed with our choice of an eating establishment in McCaysville. Food was poorly prepared and definitely overpriced! Today we visited a former teaching buddy who now lives in this area. Pictures below are from both yesterday and today.

  1. Pictures are gorgeous, esp. the sunset and the mountain range. Glad you and Mindy told us about the BR Train ride. We won't waste our $$$. Will ride the other instead.
