Snowy PA Weekend

Snowy and cold best described our weekend road trip to PA for the last of the holiday season visits with family. Since mid-December, we've spent time together and separately in several eastern states (NJ, RI, CT). This trip we traveled together and in one vehicle.

Lancaster area farmlands were pretty even though covered with a blanket of white and a horse and buggy easy traveled a back road.


The PA roads were snow covered and curving as this lone cyclist pedaled along.



This red barn against a crystal blue sky and covering of snow complete with shadows was my favorite for a picturesque scene. 

(FYI, all these shots were taken with a Canon digital Elph while Grenville carefully navigated the sometimes tricky and winding back roads.)

How brave you are to drive in this weather. Loved the red barn photo.

Pretty pictures. We might as well find the beauty in this cod wave.

Lovely collages! I do like the Lancaster area. There's so much to see there. The red barn photo is gorgeous! Well done, Beatrice, and Grenville too for his navigation that gave you the opportunity for the shot.

I love Lancaster. When my husband had a meeting there I got a county map and drove all over. The Amish country is so beautiful and I was thrilled to glimpse the children sitting on the school porch having lunch. It was like a story book.

Enjoy some time together.

Beautiful photos! Some of my ancestors lived in that region.

Great photos! I bet the cyclist and those in the buggy had a cold ride!

Beautiful shots!

I'm struck by how some of them could feel very much at home here in Ontario... even the buggy, since we've got Amish and Mennonites here.
