Autumn Overlooks


After the rain Friday and Saturday, Sunday dawned a beautiful clear day. Finding some free time in the afternoon my wife and I visited a couple of the local mountain overlooks. With a slight chill in the air and warm sunshine it was a perfect autumn afternoon that drew more than a few sightseers to the high spots.

This first shot was taken from the Bark Road overlook on Sidling Hill Mountain just south of the Lincoln Highway.



Our next stop was at the overlook near the north end of Summit Road. The little village visible here just to the left of center is Hustontown Pa, a small rural village with only a couple of stop signs and no traffic lights

The Twist & Shake at Hustontown was our next stop where my sweet little wife could not be satisfied with only one small cone :)

The colors are gorgeous.When God spills His paints on the land it results in sheer beauty.The ice-cream looks pretty good too.

Lovely views! The ice cream is the perfect way to end the day.

Lordy that is some ice cream cone. It made me smile, but surely one of them is going to you as soon as you put the camera down.

Thanks for the comments.

Patty has her 73rd birthday today. My wife for the past 54 years has a blog. If you have time, take a look and say hi. Old Lady Lincoln

Beautiful photos Coy, the country side in South Central Pa is some of the best this time of year.

Those are really big ice cream cones. My wife would have made me split one with her.

Beautiful scenery shots. If those cones are "smalls", I'd like to see the "large size" !!

My absolute downfall is ice cream just like that. Yummm
They are just about as yummy as the beautiful scenery you captured. I think you really live in God's country.

Super autumnal scenery. I bet those cones tasted as good as they look. FAB

Hi Salty...
Loverly views, Stunning Ice Cream Cones.... and to top it all off the very beautiful Mrs Salty... say a big hello to her from me and Jane... Jane sometimes gets to appear on my blog but only after a bit of fuss.. I like nothing better than a drive around the country side in my old tatty land rover with Jane at my side..

Great posting my friend
