Today, I am doing a photo montage of a wonderful trip we took to the small town of Bryson City, in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. Train rides into the Nantahala Gorge are available on reservation. There are several levels from an open car, to an vintage dining car with a full meal served.
The ride is about two hours long, with a lay over of about forty five minutes at the White Water Center, where they have competitions and train for the Olympics. You ride along beautiful Lake Fontaine as it winds its way into the gorge. For someone looking for a different vacation than usual, this is a wonderful spot to visit.
