My 2012 Pigroast adventure
« on: August 12, 2012, 02:46:51 PM »
I took a few extra days to explore a few areas for my pigroast trip.

As I did last year, I spent a few days in WV visiting with my family, and leaving my dog there to keep my parents and their dog company. 

I left for the trip on the Wednesday before the pigroast, and headed down into WV to enjoy some of the scenery.

 

 
Germany Valley off of Rt. 33 in WV
 

 
panoramic view of Germany Valley


Then I road on towards Seneca Rocks, WV.  Another nice view

 



Then onto Michigan for some good tastin pig

Weekend Sawyer loaded up with the husky loot
 

 

Then I road down through Ohio to Mansfield to see the prison used in "The Shawshank Redemption"
 

 

I didn't realize that I cropped out the roof until I was back at the hotel...

The next day I rode out across Northeast Ohio into PA and checked out a covered bridge in Mercer County.

  

  



After this I went to the southern side of the Finger Lakes, and visited Watkin's Glen, Buttermilk Falls, and Robert Treman State park near Ithaca, NY.

Buttermilk falls
 
 

  

  

 



Robert Treman State Park, this place had a cool old grist mill.

 

 
Lucifer Falls
 

  

  

 

I found this Viaduct somewhere in Pennsylvania:
 

 

And that's the cool scenery from my 2012 Pigroast trip!

the views up there are absolutely stunning.

the funny thing is I found Watkins Glen more or less by accident.  I only stopped there because I wanted a few trinkets from a gift shop!  After paying $8 to park, I figured I may as well check it out.

And everyone thinks NY is skyscrapers, Taxi's and hordes of people.. Don't know if they still do it but they used to have a lazer light show in Watkins Glen. Was very impressive.

I was much relieved to miss all of that traffic when I realized that I was there a few days before a big race!

Dan, I had missed this.  I enjoyed "cutting a Pig" with you again this year.  There were so many folks that it seems that we do not get to visit enough.  As usual, I enjoyed your traveling pictures.   smiley_thumbsup
