15 June 2013 McKean and Potter Counties

The first day of vacation was a quiet day retracing familiar steps through McKean and Potter Counties. We were searching for caches as they came with only a few older caches on our 'to-do' list.

Looking out from a peaceful cemetery...

It's peaceful now, but in 1911 400 million gallons of water pushed past this breached dam leaving behind seventy-eight dead people. As an engineer, this visit is always a sobering reminder of the need to do my best and to lead my team to do their best.

For dinner, we stopped stopped to dine at a familiar location. We had been to visit this couple's other restaurant for breakfasts a few years prior when we were vacationing on the Allegheny GeoTrail. It was a different geotrail, but the same pleasant dining experience.
