... and you could imagine an old entropnenur 'in the day' had used this mountain to make a quick buck for himself As we again approached Roanoke we passed a few fire engines outside a house, many police cars and a huge coal train with two diesels front and back passing under the road bridge. These three sights will be our lasting memory of the place, every where we went in our four night stay were accentuated by the company of these people ...
