November 2, 2011. Riding the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad!
Boarded the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad at Bryson City for a 4.5 hour trip through the Smokies, with a brief stopover at Nantahala Outdoor Center, where we watched whitewater rafting in progress. They give you food, blankets, cookies, beer and a lot of American civil war history on the train. The gorgeous fall scenery is a bonus. We were in an open gondola, so we could lean through the windows and take pictures to our hearts content. Awesome experience, highly recommended. gsmr.com FTW!
