Visiting Saluda, North Carolina

We took a little road trip to Saluda, North Carolina to check out the town.  Saluda is famous for being at the crest of the Saluda Grade, the steepest mainline standard-gauge track in the eastern United States. Rail traffic was suspended in December of 2001 but Norfolk Southern does not plan to abandon the rails and still maintains the line.

A Quick Drive Through Biltmore Sunflowers

The sunflowers are blooming!  The drive to Antler Hill Village at Biltmore Estate is lined with sunflowers in July.  A bike path makes it easy for you to get out and safely enjoy the view of thousands of sunflowers.

Biltmore Summer Flowers and Garden Trains

Off to the Biltmore Estate we go to enjoy the Summer flowers and the garden train. There is always something in bloom at our favorite spot in Asheville, North Carolina and today as a bonus we were going to explore the Vanderbilt Travels Railway.
