Each trip to Wellsboro is exciting. Wellsboro is our stopping point for visits to Pine Creek Gorge. Today's journey started at Lyman State Park. We are slowly filling a Pennsylvania State Park stamp album. We've visited Lyman multiple times. Today, the park was quiet with the beach deserted and only a few boats out enjoying the day.

We had already found the CCC Legacy of Conservation caches which were close to home so today was a driving day to Coudersport. We started our day with a wrong turn on a trail while looking for a remote gameland cache. We eventually took a deer "trail" through some very unpleasant blackberry stands. :( It looks tame here.

It was fair time! We were ready for vacation, and the timing was perfect for kicking it off at the Albion Fair. We were here in time for the riding activities and watched the costume contest. I don't remember a banana in Fruit of the Loom but the costumes and horses were popular.

I have cached at Eagle Marsh before. This evening was not one of those times. I looked for three caches and managed to find none. I did have a nice visit to the marsh with abundant wildlife sightings

We stopped at Lake Metroparks' Chagrin River Park for a walk and to search for a puzzle cache. Along the trail we spotted a very large buck and his harem. This is the second time we've spotted a buck while searching for a cache placed by this hider. He's large

I spend a few quiet lunches each summer at this ice cream stand. There are just days where life is made bearable by walking away and driving a few miles to this stand. A hot dog and chocolate malt make the rest of the day easier to face. It's a place where no one I know ever shows. I have one of these in most towns I travel. Today was a day calling out for a last visit with a hot dog and a chocolate malt.
