    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 ...

    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 ...

    Postnote.

    Passing through town later on my bike...

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

    ... decline. I do pass a good bit of functioning industry along the way (Including Del Grosso's tomato sauce factory--complete with its own amusement park!) but I wouldn't say this area feels like a real industrial hub. I take a peaceful sideroad along the river instead of following the highway. Along the way I spot a cool carving of a toothy face and mushrooms and flowers mad out of a tree stump. An ...

    ... 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 ...
