This past week, Mr Comforts of Home and I played hooky and spent the day leaf peeping.
We did it a little differently though. We took a train ride along the Tuckasegee River. The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad train.
On the way to the train station (one and a half hours away), it was foggy and a little rainy, but as you can see from the picture below, it was still a beautiful car ride.
Below is the train car we rode in.
Some pretty fall decorating at the train station.
Still a little overcast as we ride the train along the river.
This is the train wreck from the movie, The Fugitive. It was filmed at this location, outside of Dillsboro, NC.
About mid afternoon the skies cleared. It was a beautiful fall day.
Are there any special places you go to during the fall to leaf peep in your area?
