Not a friendly reception and a small sign required an additional $3 for parking (since August). Yes, it's a small amount, but nickels & dimes add up.
Anyway, one of the 2 elevators was unavailable (in repair). Good thing I was on the 2nd floor and could just run upstairs. I noticed dirty glasses and a cup on the floor by the elevator when I went up - these stayed there all afternoon and into the evening.
The room was clean and comfortable with fridge, micro and coffee maker, so no faults there. And at the end of the hall, it was quiet.
The fitness center has 4 machines, of which only 2 work (a bike and a treadmill). The indoor pool, sauna and hot tub were enjoyed by others as
I labored at the bike.
The restaurant, Harrigans, is convenient and has an extensive wine selection and attractive dessert viewing tray. The food was good but the bill was inaccurate and fortunately I caught the $8 overcharge and was assured that the computer entry was reset for future patrons.
So, the room is fine, but the rest needs some attention.

We arrived there late in the afternoon and had only about an hour to explore the fort and museum. As you can see from the pictures, it was a lot different than Fort Necessity. This time we did not escape the rain and had to make use of our umbrellas (or bumper-shoots) midway through the tour. The restoration was incredible and the guides were very knowledgeable and helpful.
After leaving Bonnie and Dave, we headed to Laurel Hills State Park to see if we could find a dry hiking path. We did not but Heather rolled up her pants and secure in our hiking boots we hit the trail. That is, after our encounter with some park wildlife. To date, our wildlife consisted of a frog, a butterfly, some longhorn steers and a groundhog. So ...
... to the wall of names carved in Marble. The Marble wall as well as the new Visitors Center is constructed along the flight path to the point of impact. At that point of rest, there is a large sandstone boulder that is original. There are 40 groves of trees being reintroduced into this large meadow. This was an area that had been strip mined. The sacrifice of these individuals leaves one speechless and in tears. ...
4 hrs, 6.1 kms Day totals: 17 hrs, 31.1 kms Actual date: May 28, 2015 I continue on south, up over a ridge and through the forest, to another much smaller valley. which consists of some farmland and open meadows... and a big trailer park in the middle. I wonder how the farmers here felt, seeing this new "neighborhood" suddenly pop up in their peaceful valley... Further up ahead a section of the valley floor has been turned ...
