We saw a hot air balloon from the interstate. I think that’s the second or third time in that area. I would do that sometime but I did have a friend who had to make an emergency landing on Hwy 26.
The day started with a wrong turn close to our first stop based on directions that were a little off. We were following two sets of directions to Alarka Falls. One from a 2008 post and one from a website I visit often. We were trying to get to the Falls to see the waterfall while we were over at Bryson City. When we did find it we were pushed for time if we wanted to eat more than granola bars before the train ride.
