Buffalo to Delaware, August 2008
Here are my pictures from my drive back from my vacation in Buffalo/Canada. Like my drive from Delaware to Buffalo, I strayed from my normal route to see places that I have not seen before.
For my drive back, I actually started in Canada. I left straight from my grandparents' cottage near Port Colborne, Ontario. This trip starts out with a couple pictures in Canada.
The Point Abino Lighthouse, as seen from Crystal Beach Waterfront Park in Crystal Beach, Ontario. The Point Abino Lighthouse was built in 1918 and is a unique lighthouse in Ontario: it was made from poured concrete. Many lighthouse enthusiasts regard the Point Abino Lighthouse as the most elegant lighthouse along Canada's Great Lake shores.
The Buffalo skyline from the Crystal Beach Waterfront Park.
The mountains of the Southern Tier are visible from the southern terminus of the U.S. Route 219 expressway. The terminus of the expressway is currently located in Springville, but it is currently being expanded south to Ashford. Construction of the extension can be seen in the foreground.
The HoliMont ski resort, the largest private ski club in the United States, is located just south of Ellicottville.
Bare slopes at HoliMont.
Entering Pennsylvania from New York Route 417 near Ceres, New York.
Views from Pennsylvania Route 44 southeast of Coudersport. Route 44 is by far the most isolated road that I have ever driven on, and there are almost no houses for over 75 miles of winding mountain road. In fact, there aren't any buildings at all for stretches of road that are several miles long.
The view from Mount Broadhead, elevation 2480 feet.
The view from Pine Hill Summit, elevation 2175 feet.
Pennsylvania Route 44 finally comes out of the mountains and signs of human life can be seen near Waterville.
The Williamsport skyline from I-180.
The Little League Museum on U.S. Route 15 in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The stadium where the Little League World Series is played is just behind the museum, at the bottom of the hill.
Reptiland, a small zoo specifically about reptiles, located on U.S. Route 15 north of Allenwood and directly across Route 15 from a Federal Penitentiary.
Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA
The Susquehanna River
Harrisburg's skyline is visible for the split second from southbound U.S. Route 322 near Dauphin.
Dutch Wonderland, an amusement park on U.S. Route 30 east of Lancaster. Dutch Wonderland is great for small kids, and my parents used to take me there a lot when I was around 5 to 8 years old.
Farmland near Strasburg, PA
An Amish one-room schoolhouse along Pennsylvania Route 741 between Strasburg and Gap.
Scenery along Route 741 near Gap.
Finally back in Delaware!
