Back to Reality

Why do vacations have to go so fast???  We left our hotel around 7:45 and I thought we were going to stop halfway for the night but Russell wanted to try to push for home.  The truck did really well and we experienced no mechanical issues, although it was a very long trip and we didn't get home until 11:00 pm.

Wasn't much to shoot in OH so I started in PA. 

Allegheny Mtn. Tunnel

Of course I was determined to shoot this again.

And this one.

It's very pretty in West/Central PA.  Lots of mountains.  Well.....mountains for the east coast.  They're no Cascades....

 The next three tunnels come up pretty fast, one right after the other.

Susquehanna River just north of Harrisburg

This is where we hit pretty bad traffic the closer we got to the NY metro area.

Getting there....

 Not long to CT from the Tappan Zee.

It was a long drive but we had the best time on this trip and can't wait to go back!


  1. glad you made it home safe and sound. Vacations do go by much too quickly. But now you can dream of the next one.

    1. And the next one is coming up fast.....leaving on 10/30 to see the boys and if all goes smooth in the next month, we'll be headed to Florida for a few days after we leave OH.

  2. I remember the Allegheny Tunnel, been through it a few times ourselves. Holidays always do go too fast don't they?

    1. Waaay too fast. It was a lot of fun though. Perfect balance of sightseeing and family all rolled into one.
