All Aboard!

Train coming soon, Kimosabi
Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) is a wonderland for the young and the young at heart. I apologize that my blog posts deviate from the hike from time to time, but the towns that I visit and the people that join me for these hikes are just as much a part of my story as the hike itself.  One thing we all enjoyed seeing again was the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad train. We have been on this train before as part of the Polar Express ride at Christmas time but it was nice to see it again as chugged along the beautiful mountain terain.  We thought about taking a short round trip ride from NOC to Bryson City, but time just didn't permit us to do that on this trip...maybe next year.
