o.k. some people had glorious vacations in Italy and the beach. We went to Potato City and looked at the stars at an abandoned air-strip in a zero light pollution area of northwestern Pennsylvania. Did I mention that unbeknownst to us a bear lived in the hanger? The Allegheny Mountains however, are just glorious. It's been a long time I drove for hundreds of miles without seeing a Walmart or chain restaurant.
Luckily, we sought refuge at the Potato City Motor Lodge. We were literally the only guests -- surrounded by stuffed hunting trophies. All the other rooms were open with beds unmade. Kinda like the Shining. They gave us a key-- and we were lucky to get the jungle room.
We stopped at a look-out at a dam. The sky was strange during our trip. One side was sunny and the other rainy. We drove through rainbows.
