Rural Pennsylvania through the Windshield

Having recently taken a road trip from NC to NJ, on the return trip, I decided to take a road less traveled and jump off I-78 just outside of Allentown, heading south on 222.  I really didn’t have time to stop (rental car to return by end of day – darn! And Gettysburg was on the menu too!).  Nevertheless, I was able to slow down and, with my little Canon G12 in front of the steering wheel, I grabbed these scenes along Pennsylvania’s Route 30, from Lancaster to Chambersburg.  Architecture, art, murals, farms, and YES!! – even rotaries are still around!

Then the rain.  After returning to I-81 and coming into Roanoke, a serious downpour hampered travel for another 2 hours.  Ugh!!  But what the heck?  An accident, stop and go, nothing to do but keep shooting….

(No joke – I rented a Nissan Altima, drove 10 hours/550 miles, ran errands and side trips for another day, and only then, filled up the tank for the first time!  Time to scrap the ’96 Impala and get a new car!  Well, maybe not just yet…)

When the rain comes, they run and hide their heads…
