[QUOTE=Skyclad;20748399]One last picture from on the way home. This one is for the geology buffs out there. I love the distinct layering and the way you can see how the rock buckled.

If I remeber from high school correctly, this would be called cleavage!

Is this a shot along 322 in the area of what used to be called the narrows between Lewistown and Mifflintown, or along 11/15 just north of 322. Maybe neither.

Not the Cleavage I was looking at in high school

Yeah, this is more the type of cleavage I was interested in during high school.

322, east end of the narrows.

Had a little problem with Mattie last week. Poor girl just didn't want to start. New battery and cleaning a few electrical connections did the trick and I took her out tagging on Saturday just to make sure she was good to go.

Lancaster county has close to 30 covered bridges. Here are two of them.





Hmm, guess that I will take the cage to work this morning.

That was my decision as well. Hopefully this will be the last decent snow of Spring.

I did a lot of wandering the past few weeks. 13 days on the road, 2817 miles total with over 1200 miles of the Trans-eastern Trail. I debated whether to post it here, or do a full ride report. Well, the ride report won. Here is your link.

and a couple teaser photos





















Now, go check it out, ya bunch of Bastards!

it has not been a good summer so far for recreational riding. Work, family obligations and brutal heat have kept me off the bike far more than I would like. Hopefully, that will is behind me for awhile and I will be able to start posting more to this thread.

Blasting Elf and I are going to be riding to Hot Springs, NC this October, so we thought it would be a good thing to get her more time in the saddle. Just a short 90 mile loop today, but we will be working up to 200+ mile daily rides by the end of the summer.

Not many pictures as I was talking with Julie most of the time. Gotta love those Scala units.



Trust me, I look far sillier sitting on the Elf's bike than she does sitting on mine.


Here is proof of that


And proof that Julie does ride her own bike. Not many photos of this type of thing exist...yet.




Like I said, not many pictures. There will be more activity here though. We are going to get in more riding together than usual this summer to get Julie ready for the October ride. It will be her longest ride by a long shot. Hopefully, I will even get her to chime in from time to time.

Bring it Blasting Elf.

We missed you yesterday Sky, but it seems you had better things to do!!

Julie had to spend the night close to Philly last night. I didn't work yesterday or today. Guess where I spent last night?

We live about 90 miles from Philadelphia, so I took a proper shortcut on the way home today. Not sure what my mileage was today, but I know that I had gone about 150 miles when I stopped for gas the second time.

First stop was in Valley Forge.












A bit of archaeology going on


The National Arch






Pennsylvania Columns


General Wayne; his house was about five miles from Valley Forge, yet he stayed with his men instead of going home to his wife. Probably good for troop morale, but I am not sure it would have been easy to go home after that.


Even found a little bit of mild twisty in the National Park




See, we even let Jersey boys into the state back then.


OK, enough history for now. Unfortunately, there weren't may good shots after I left Valley Forge.

I don't know I would want to advertise this, but thanks for the warning.


Summer time road hazard


Almost home now

I do love early mornings on the weekends. Little traffic and a peaceful feeling in the area. Still, the power must flow, and the Susquehanna River is tapped to provide a bit at the York Haven hydroelectric plant.


Sometimes, the river does not provide the power, but cools the plants that do. Brunner Island is a coal-fired generation station that draws its cooling water from the Susquehanna River. The water must be cooled off before they return it to the river; you can see where that takes place from the vapor cloud rising out of the trees.


There actually are not all that many bridges across the river, but here are two of them. I am on the Wrightsville Ferry bridge (Rt 462) and looking at the US 30 bridge.
