Tweetsie Railroad
Wednesday, 2006 October 18 - 8:29 am
Reliving Amy's youth.

A couple of weekends ago, Amy and I went up to the mountains to visit her family. While we were there, we decided to indulge Amy's childhood memories by stopping into a theme park called Tweetsie Railroad. It's an old-west, mining, and railroad-themed amusement park, nestled in the mountains between Boone and Blowing Rock, North Carolina.



It's the kind of place little kids would probably greatly enjoy. There's not a lot for adults... notably, none of the dining establishments served any alcohol. But still, the scenery was pretty (the trees have started changing colors), and it wasn't a bad way to spend an afternoon.



We went on a little train ride, on which actors performed a cowboys-and-indians skit. I use the term "actors" loosely, as they seemed to all be Appalachian State University students just out to earn a buck. At least one of them may have been drunk, so there must have was alcohol somewhere... just not available to the public.



We stopped into the gift shop and Amy briefly considered picking up this souvenir.



"You look a chef", I said.

Amy replied, "Maybe a Sioux chef?"

Groan.
