TODAY: Williamsport, Pennsylvania to Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania


Millionaire's Row, Williamsport, Pennsylvania.









Bowman Field, one of the oldest professional baseball stadiums in the world.



Beyond the outfield walls of Bowman Field is a small residential neighborhood. Sometimes, backdrops of downtowns and rivers or other bodies of water can get old. This backdrop of a neighborhood is perfect for minor league baseball, and makes Bowman Field all the better.







Carl E. Stotz Field, the birthplace of Little League Baseball. This was the first Little League field in history.





Layers of mountains on U.S. Route 15 near Trout Run.



Driving into the clouds.



Scenery at the boundary between Lycoming and Tioga Counties.



Mansfield, PA



The Tioga Reservoir, formed by a dam to prevent flooding on the Tioga River.



Tioga, PA



Driving on U.s. Route 15 south of Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania. Route 15 is a two-lane road in this area. Up on the hill, the future I-99 is being built.

Here are the first of many posts containing pictures from my trip to Buffalo and Canada.

These pictures are some of my favorites of Point Abino from the Sherkston Shores beach resort. Point Abino is a piece of land that sticks out into Lake Erie, and has long been known as a graveyard for ships because of the change in currents and the rocky reef that extends into the water. Indeed, if you cruise the waters around Point Abino, you can see ships laying on the bottom of the lake with your bare eyes, if the water is clear enough and the sun is out. The Point Abino Lighthouse was built in the early 1900s to warn sailors and captains about the shelf of rock, and the lighthouse still stands today.

The lighthouse is not visible from the Sherkston area, as it is just around the final small bend. I will post a couple pictures of the lighthouse later on.

Point Abino is very close to Crystal Beach. You can see Crystal Beach from Point Abino, and vice versa. Crystal Beach is on the other side of Point Abino in these pictures; these pictures are from Sherkston.

The drive from the middle of Crystal beach to the main area of Point Abino (the yacht clubs and boat ramps on the eastern side of the point) is only 2.5 miles (4 km). If you go straight across Abino Bay, it's just under 2 miles (3 km).

My grandparents' cottage near Sherkston is about a 4 mile (6.25 km) drive to the main area of Point Abino. These views, which is of the land at the tip, is about 2.25 miles away (3.5 km).

The Four Corners in Palmyra, New York, is the intersection of Main & Canandaigua Streets. The intersection is called "the Four Corners" because there is a church on all four corners of the intersection. It is believed that this is the only intersection in the United States to have a church on all 4 corners.


Southeast Corner: Zion Episcopal Church



Southwest Corner: First Baptist Church



Northeast Corner: Western Presbyterian Church



Northwest Corner: First United Methodist Church

Pretty neat, the church with the columns is fairly unique.

I bet that you're interested in seeing my pictures from my drive through the Endless Mountains area. Those will be coming up soon.

Back in December, I went down to Chattanooga, Tennessee, with a couple friends for the NCAA Division 1-AA title game, where my old school, the University of Delaware, was to play Appalachian State (they lost ).

Since we only made a day trip out of the game, we did not see too much stuff in Chattanooga. One thing that we did see was Lookout Mountain and the Incline Railway. The Incline Railway that goes up the mountain is the steepest incline railway in the world; I think they said that it was as much as 75% grade. When we got to the top of the mountain, I took a lot of pictures. I have finally gotten around to making a panorama from my pictures.

In this picture, 6 states are visible: Tennessee right in front of your face and in the foreground on the left (with Chattanooga's skyline along the Tennessee River), Georgia in much of the foreground on the right, North Carolina way in the distance in the center, South Carolina way in the distance at the right of center, Kentucky in the distance to the extreme left, and Virginia in the distance close to the very left.

I was in New York to visit a friend and see the Phillies play the Mets. I walked around on Friday and saw the sights. Here are a sample of my pictures.

I get around a decent amount. I have a few friends that go to more places than me, though. For instance, I have one friend that has been to all of these places in the last 18 months: London, Dublin, Boston, New York, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Washington DC, Atlanta, Chattanooga, Tampa, Miami, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Los Angeles, and Spokane. He and I are also going to Chicago later in the month, so he'll have another city to add to his recent list (as will I).
