This was the scene as we left the refuge. The biologists are talking with the hiking group about ducks as they have been catching them to band. After hugs and handshakes, we were on our way.
Our first night was spent on the turnpike in Massachusetts (my least favorite state). All we want to do is go through and get out as quickly as possible!!
Going through Hartford, Ct. at 8:19 a.m. Slow but not bad. Crossed into New York at 9:30 a.m.
Hartford skyline in the fog.
Crossing the Hudson River in New York. In the fog.
Crossing into Pennsylvania.
Our second night was at a Flying J in Mill Hall, Pa. This is one of the nicest places to overnight. They have a Denny's Restaurant, fuel, and parking for the night. Right after I took this picture, the rain came down.
Some beautiful scenes of farm houses in the valley as we are going 60 mph. As you can see we had fog along with heavy rain and white out conditions making for some tense times. We are on I 80. There are scenes like these all along the way.
We made it to our destination...Raystown Lake, just east of Altoona, Pa. This is an Army Corps of Engineers campground, our first time staying in one. As old folks, you get to stay half price. We have 50 amp with water near by...no sewer, but there is a dump station. We are in site #149 in the point camp section.
They have nice bathrooms with hot water for our showers.
Since summer, in Pennsylvania, they have had only one 6 day period without rain.
We will be here for a few days of sightseeing. See what's next.
