I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
Were I traveling with Robert Frost he would approve of my highway and byway choices. I found Pennsylvania charming with it's little roads all parting ways through wooded hills or old towns. One such smaller road off of a smaller highway led me past a Pennsylvania vernacular house. I'd been looking for such a house.
Next to that Pennsylvania vernacular house was a Pennsylvania vernacular barn.
I'm staying in a delightful small cabin for a few days gathering my thoughts, sorting piles and circling destinations on my maps. If you were in the area and wished to stay here contact Steve Wenham at firstname.lastname@example.org
The sun draws lines in the snow. Today I drove out of the snow line into Connellsville and realized that I'll be sad to see the end of the shine on the icy snow and the light between the trees. When I got back home I took a swing on the tire hanging in front of my cabin enjoying the light.
My plans are loosely conceived, the better to allow for the unexpected. I'll end this post with photos of the reconstructed Fort Necessity just a few miles from my cabin. I kind of remembered that my 5th great grand uncle fought there with George Washington as a drummer boy. The park ranger had him on their list for this battle.
Washington lost the battle in this hastily constructed structure of necessity and surrendered. I appreciated the unplanned opportunity to visit this site. (Many years after the battle George Washington returned and bought this meadow. Most curious.)
