The weather forecast for the weekend looks sunny and pleasant but don’t forget to bring a jacket along just in case! Tweetsie Railroad’s Ghost Train event kicks off this evening and Apple Hill Farm in Banner Elk is set to celebrate National Alpaca Farm Days on Saturday and Sunday.

  • Grandfather Mountain you're big and you're high.  It seems that your shoulders help to hold up the sky.  I will never forget you till the day that I die.   Oh I will keep those old memories alive.

    If you have never been there a beauty so wild and so rare, it could even rival a rose.  And on a clear day from the top of his head, you can see clear to Charlotte below.
