Our Little Trip - Benezette and Wellsboro

We left very early on Monday morning and drove 88 miles to Benezette. We have visited Benezette several times and have always seen elks. Elks actually lay in people's yards in the small town. Unfortunately, this was the first time that we did not see any elks at all. The waitress in the restaurant told us that there were no sitings all day. We'd like to go back in the fall.
I'm pretending that we saw this elk.
This small church is Decker's Chapel. It is located in Saint Mary's, a small town next to Benezette. It is unofficially known as the smallest church in the United States.

We left Saint Marys and drove 95 miles to Wellsboro. Wellsboro in a wonderful little town. There are gas street lights and a quaint down town area. We stayed at the Canyon Motel. It was nice as there was an inside pool, a hot tub, and sauna. The rooms also have microwaves and refrigerators. We always take munchies with us when we travel. We found a nice restaurant. After we ate, I read while the boys swam. There were only a few people at the pool and it was very relaxing.

The next morning we left for the Grand Canyon. There are several hiking trails. We really saw some beautiful scenery. It was much greener than in our area and also there were more visible signs of fall.

We saw an eagle.

At 12:30 we went for a covered wagon ride. It lasted over two hours and was great. Later in the afternoon we visited the zoo. To my irritation, I left my camera in the car.

Austin, Tyler, and Seth in the Sauna at the Motel
We got up on Wednesday morning and went for a dip in the pool. We ate breakfast and did some more sight seeing and headed home. We stopped at a great looking restaurant and thought that we would have a nice meal. It turned out to be a sandwich and fry restaurant. We ate and then drove to Duncansville. We dropped Seth off at his house, visited with Jennifer, Rich, Michael, and Seth for a while and headed home. Austin was ready to go home to his house. Tyler decided to stay all night. It was still daylight. I threw some clothes in the washer. My husband took a nap. Tyler was full of energy and went to his friend's house. It ended up that I didn't get to bed until after 2:00 a.m.

Hi:
We have been to the Pa. Grand Canyon. We went on motorcycles a couple years ago. I am going to have my husband check out that town and motel you mentioned. We are always looking for good places to visit. I sent you an email.
Great looking grandsons you have.

Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
are you using for this site? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had issues
with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
