4th of July Weekend Road Trip



After a 5am wake up call and leaving in a big beautiful thunderstorm, we drove for hours north.  We stopped about noon-ish in New York State, at the ranger station in the Allegheny Mountains.  Why there?  I wanted a stamp for my National Park Passport!  But the station was closed on Sundays AND holidays.  No stamp for me.

The stop was not unwelcome, however.  There wasn’t a much eating because there were these 3 big boulders near the picnic table.  Just right for climbing on!

After a few more hours in the car (and driving down TINY roads…stupid GPS), we finally made it to our destination!

Then we piled back in the car and drove another few hundred miles to where we were going to spend the night. More tomorrow!


PS- Does the waterfall look familiar? It’s my header!
