... with houses with enormous yards. This actually bothers me more than the trailer park--at least the trailer park provides homes for people in a space efficient way... this development looks like a squandering of a precious resource on huge yards that people really aren't going to use for anything... Veering off to the west is my next town: Newry. This town wins the prize for Shabbiest Town Hall. It looks like a little old church ...

... with them against the British in the Revolutionary War. I take a stroll down Main Street, then back up the adjacet street where, as I expected, what looks like a castle is actually an old prison... To the south of Hollidaysburg there are some big boulders rising from the mountain where you can get a good view up Logan' Valley.

... waves at me, so I figure I should ask permission before taking a picture. He's more than happy to show me his works of art--even taking me to the backyard to see his other masterpieces, with the stream just a few feet away. "Do you have problems with floods?" I ask. "Every year is different." he tells me. "last winter, the stream picked up a big sheet of foot thick ice and pushed it onto the ...

1862 The Mansions of Tyrone

... somehow. But beneath the surface things are not all perfect. Turns out Tyrone has been steadily losing population since the 1920s. I notice at Burger King that out of 7 employees, 6 of them (men and women) look like they're in their 30s or 40s. I'm guessing that that tells something about the shortage of decent job opportunities in this area. Still, I'd say Tyrone has managed to keep its dignity through nearly a century of decline. So, thumbs up for this ...
