    ... 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 ...

    3 hrs, 7 kms Actual date: May 28, 2015 From Altoona, the plan is to contine on west to Johnstown where it looks like there are a whole bunch of towns I can add to my collection and hopefully hit my 2,000 town benchmark soon. But first I'll add a couple more towns here in the Logan Valley. Hollidaysburg is 4 miles to the south. And after a couple of miles of sunscorched busy road walking, I start to wonder if ...

    And then the city ends and the vast strip mall hell begins. I'm not complaining though. Despite all my gripping about suburban sprawl, I'll always choose a 7 buck all you can eat Chinese buffet in a strip mall over a pricey deli downtown...

    Postnote.

    Passing through town later on my bike...

    I spot a sign that reads "Oldest Gas ...

    ... valley, a pretty standard middle class town with a shabby little Main Street and a grid of quiet residential streets. Beyond, the valley feels surprisingly underdeveloped--at least on the road I'm taking, with a lot of land that looks like it might have been developed for a while and then let gone wild... Finally, as dusk sets in, I reach the edge of the main city, Altoona... and I decide to call it a ...

    ... Main Street which ends with an old paper factory right next to the mountain. On the west side the houses are also pressed right against the wooded slopes, giving it a cozy, old school industrial mountain town feel. Many of these houses are quite beautiful as well--giant homes each with their unique flair--turrets, vine covered walls... some showing their age a bit, but still beautiful. Somehow with the rain and the lush scenery this reminds me of ...
