    Nice...the shield for the bike deflects the lance right up under the poor fitting helmet into the riders face. I think I will keep looking.:lol3

    Took a little detour on the way home today, and found an interesting little cemetery.

    A quick Google search revealed that Hans Graf was born in Switzerland in 1661 and fled the persecution of Mennonites in his homeland.

    I will certainly have to return to this location with a better camera (Droid pictures today) and more time.

    I was doing research on the GROVE families of Franklin County, PA, that are related to my wife, it seems that many of their ancestors went by the sir name Grof or Groff when they first arrived in America.

    Yep, the page I found mentioned Grove as one of the decedent names of Graf.

    Had a nice little ride this morning. Had to get home early for Talen's birthday, so not much time for photos. Got a few nice shots though.

    Really like this picture.

    One of my favorite signs to see on a ride. You know that good things are in your immediate future.

    I wonder when this dam was taken out?

    Which is better...this one?

    Or this one?

    Not only did I see a flock of wild turkeys, I was actually able to get a picture.

    I agree as well, it's the spookier picture.
    Seeing the Loch Ness Monster rising out of the water in that one would seem about right.

    It would appear the previous video post post is having technical difficulties.
