Photos from the Biltmore Gardens Railway

What a fantastic garden railroad the Biltmore Estate has created. The Biltmore Gardens Railway is made up of over 800 feet of G-Gauge track. The model trains run at different levels. Bridges and buildings are all made of natural items such as bark and twigs. It is absolutely stunning!

KKoA Icons of Hotrodding Festival Photos

The Kustom Kemps of America (KKoA) held their second Icons of Hotrodding Festival at the Maggie Valley Festival grounds in Maggie Valley, North Carolina. My buddy and I spent a couple hours on Friday afternoon looking over the hotrods and kustoms that were on the festival grounds. There were many beautiful rides to see. The show would bring over 200 vehicles from 8 states to gather for a fantastic two days. KKoA's festival in Maggie Valley is getting better each year.

Photos from the Southeast Mini Truckin Nationals

We always enjoy walking around the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds when the Southeast Mini Truckin' Nationals rolls into town. The Festival Grounds are a great place to have any show. Parking for spectators can be a bit tight but we arrived early and found a spot. Mini truckers from all over drove Fords, Chevys, Toyotas, and many other truck makes. Many of these laid-out trucks had wild paint jobs, which always makes me smile.

Photos from Biltmore Blooms

We finally were able to catch the wisteria in bloom at the Biltmore Estate. The azaleas and various other flowers and shrubs in bloom during late April made for a pleasant morning stroll through the gardens.
