    I haven't been taking a lot of ride pictures lately, but I did get this one to show what the (I think) Rhododendron flower looks like:

    I was getting ready for work, checked the tracker for the 765 and saw it would be here in about 1/2 hour. I emailed work and told them I'd be late.

    Sorry for your loss Tow. His health hasn't been good the last year, but he's made a comeback. He can't walk very far, but most of everything we saw he could see from the car/train. When I took my cycle trip last year it was probably one if if not the first time I had seen/been places he hadn't. I figured this would be a way to give back just a little.

    Temp of 65, I don't think we will have many more like this one in 2012.

    Roger, i wanted to take my Wife up here this fall, but I couldn't remember exactly where it was.
    I think it was 522/22 North of Mt. Union? We made it to Mt Union, but went West to head to Raystown.
    I think I was close?

    That is on the road that connects 22/552 to 655 near belleville. So from MU you would have headed towards Lewistown.
    EDIT: Jacks Mountain Road is the official name.

    Thanks, I got it, Its even called "Wills Road". I remember finding it when I was heading north to pickup the Trans PA Trail so I could follow it south. This might even be on the Trans PA Trail, but I forget. Next year I will be back.
    By posting these notes here, I will remember where to look for it. :D
    thanks

    Time to bring some life back into this thread.
    Yesterday's forecast was for 50+ temps and sun so my buddy Buc and I decided to go for a ride.

    We rode over to Greenwood Furnace State Park to watch the Polar Plunge.
    From what I heard, people pay $50 to dive into the icy water. The expression on this guys face says it all.

    She looks a little in shock as well.
