This is a well-run Motel 6, and you will get what you expect from a Motel 6: it's clean, decorated as it was in the 60s, probably, and basic. The staff was friendly, and if you are willing to do without luxuries to get a relatively inexpensive room, then this is a good buy.

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.

... worth it just to add what I assume with be a boring, generic suburb. Along the way I pass I construction site marked "Islamic Society" where it looks like a small mosque is being built.

Sorry folks, nothing is "forever"--especially not when it comes to urban development.
One thing I do notice different about Altoona is that the vast majority of people in the run down neighborhoods around downtown are white folks. When you see a Confederate flag flying from a window just a block from downtown, you know this ...
6 hrs, 14.1 kms Day totals: 17 hrs, 40.1 kms Actual date: May 27, 2015 Logan Valley actually has a freeway running through it, Interstate 99. So it is reasonably connected with the rest of the country (not to mention a major railway). However, with areas like the Cumberland Valley being so much more central for warehouses and such, it doesn't seem like this freeway has managed to save Logan Valley ...
... to have developed into a fairly significant industrial hub of its own--so I'm looking forward to discovering it and adding it to my hike. It's also the first significant Pennsyvania "civilization" that I'm discovering for the first time in a long while. One minute I'm walking through the narrow, isolated Little Juniata Gorge... the next minute I find myself in downtown Tyrone, my first town in Logan Valley. And I like this town right away. It's got a ...
