Jul 27, 2014 - 7/27 Last Day

On the road for, perhaps, the last day of this trip. As usual we traveled under grey skies, but avoided all the heavy storms along the way. We paced ourselves well, taking frequent rest stops. When we merged onto I76 (known in this state as the Pennsylvania Turnpike), we felt sure that we could make it all the way home. We arrived here at 301 Casa Vita about 6:30, after a brief stop at a supermarket. On the way, we talked about the highlights for each of us and the disappointments.

We met a couple from Austen TX who are going to Lansing, MI. Interesting, nice people.

No sightseeing till later. Paul is eager to get to the Yukon Territories and Alaska. We plan to go north on the west side of the Canadian Rockies since we...

To Alaska and Back

Aug 6, 2011 - 6 August - Fox Den Campsite, PA

We spent a couple of nights here because they had a nice pool with a slide ;-) We also stayed so we could visit Fallingwater, one of Frank Lloyd Wrights's most widely acclaimed works. It was designed in 1935 for the family of Pittsburgh department sort owner Edgar J. Kaufmann. The key to the setting of the house is the waterfall over which it is built. (not finished)
