Leonard Harrison State Park, PA






(sign says): "NESSMUK - The pen name of poet, woods, man, outdoor writer and pioneer conservationist George Washington Sears (1821-1890) a resident of Wellsboro, Pa. From near this spot he wrote the first prose and verse descriptions of the Pine Creek Gorge."

Leonard Harrison State Park, "Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania", Wellsboro, PA. 16901, (570)724-3061, I must say I don't understand why it is called the Grand Canyon of PA? it is a gorgeous area, please don't get me wrong, but it looks nothing like the Grand Canyon. Just Sayin' ??! I am always wondering how folks come up with names for parks, businesses and other places ...we really need to work on that, be more descriptive and to the point. Like we have noticed a lot of just for an example, you have a hotel that is called "Water Lake Views" but it is no even close to a water view or location? It really makes no sense. Mean what you name says please? ( ;

have a great day. i appreciate your comments. see ya again real soon. Beth ( ;

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
