The first time I road through Troy, PA, I was traveling by minivan on Rt. 6 (a nice ride in itself). It was nice to see the town again. It's a pretty town in northern PA. The one thing that amazed me about Troy are the number of old, fancy houses. Given the surrounding areas and no obvious signs of industry, the town appears to have had an affluent past and a seemingly healthy future.
Just that. Nothing special. Stopped at a convenience store, bought a bottle of water and gave a couple cub scouts who were doing a fund raiser a few dollars. Trying to decide whether I want to spend another night on the road or save money and ride the rest of the way home. Skies are a mix of sun and large dark clouds in the distance. When the sun isn't shining it's a little cool --- high today is only around ...
Just arrived. Haven't really had a chance to check out town yet. Eating at Subway. Just finished walking more than 2 miles through the gorge. It is very beautiful and nice and cool.
Following a late lunch at Subway I went across the street to Watkins Glen State Park. The park is really amazing, you walk through a stone tunnel and then her into a gorge that is unbelievable. The sheer cliffs and the waterfalls ...
... for any others enough to buy a bottle.
After our wine tasting, some snacks, and a few photo opps by some beautiful waterfalls we started the drive back home to Pennsylvania. All in all it was a wonderful trip and I would love to go back again camping, hiking, or touring any time! And I'm still pretty proud of Joey and I for sticking it out and braving the elements on our first camping trip! ...
... Also had a nice wine list with many selections from the near-by Seneca Lake wineries. I, myself tried a Cabernet Franc from the Lakewood winery on Seneca Lake and it was delicious. But more about the wineries later!
All in all it was a wonderful trip and definitely one to laugh about later! Hey remember that time when we went camping and it stormed all weekend and our tent was leaking... haha that's so funny... Well haha wish us better luck next time! =)
