As was previously posted on my blog, we didn’t get to go away for the weekend as originally planned. Staying home, though, did have its positive elements, as we had some local excitement here yesterday morning (and without it I wouldn’t have been inspired to write this poem). Anyway, since we stayed home in PA for the weekend, we decided to make the most of it and go on a road trip yesterday. It was actually my parents’ idea; so we all loaded up in the van and set out . . .
Our first stop was in the quaint town of Wellsboro, PA. We stopped at a grocery store for some picnic food. I wish I would have had all day just to spend browsing the shops in this neat town. We’ll have to go back sometime. I was impressed with their streetlights – they’re gas!
From there, we went to the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. I’ve lived in PA all my life, and I honestly don’t believe I’ve ever seen it. My parents find that extremely hard to believe, but I usually have a pretty good memory about our trips (think: Disney!) Anyway, talk about breathtaking!
After the Grand Canyon, my parents wanted to take us to Elk County. On the way, we stopped to see the Austin Dam.
Our next stop was Benezette, PA to see the Elk. Apparently, many years ago, elk were brought into the area. They’ve since multiplied and they are EVERYWHERE – literally right in peoples’ yards, etc. Apparently, though, we picked the day to visit that EVERYONE ELSE in a 5-state area chose as well. The town was PACKED with people. It was getting dark, so my pictures didn’t turn out too great; but at least you can see that we saw some elk.
Here are my favorite pictures (my “treasures”) from our day away:
