also, that old home i went to awhile back housed a great treasure. torn up old encyclopedias from the 1930’s. I opened one of the books directly to the page with the thylacine on it (my favorite marsupial). needless to say, the old tome came with me and the thylacine page is framed in my room. there’s also a uintatherim skeleton that I guess I never snagged a photo of (which is my favorite eocene mammal; i am actually a huge science dork)

I forgot to showcase this ruin, as it’s a fun hike but not much is there. This is the Powderhole, which is a popular swimming hole for those who like to jump off rocks into freezing rocky creek water (if you do that’s great, i’ll be up on the bridge lounging like the lizard i am)

The legend, as I have been told, is that this was a gun powder factory that went kaboom. I also don’t remember where this is at all, but i believe it’s on the “west side” of good ole NEPA.

Huber Breaker/Blue Coal, Ashley, PA. we will miss you.

Barn in Millersville, PA. I didn’t venture inside since locals have warned me of property owners with shotguns.  This is corn country after all.

a few quick snapshots as I was stuck at the light in front of the rubble from the Hotel Sterling today.  So sad to lose it but this area is full of corrupt politicians and no money, so it was expected.

It’s still rather dusty around the site.

Just some picstitch nonesense of Giant’s Despair near Wilkes-Barre, PA. It’s an excellent spot to just chill out and watch the sun set.
