We were Cape Codded out. . .so we decided to leave four days early,
do a one nighter in Hartford CT. . . the State Capitol. . .
and then head on to Hershey PA the next morning. . .
isn’t this a pretty setting?
Lake Wilderness RV Park in Willington CT, about 20 minutes out of Hartford. . .
and a Passport America Park. . .so $25 per night. . .not bad. . .
we pulled in. . .hooked up electric only. . .
unhooked the Jeep. . .and headed off to Hartford. . .
which may have the most stunningly beautiful State House
I have witnessed to this point. . .fabulous!
Too bad we arrived at the worst time of day for pics,
but still. . .stunningly beautiful. . .
woke the next morning to 40* temps. . .brrrr. . .
and off we go. . .rolling by eight. . .which is exceptionally early for us. . .
oops. . .sorry Babe. . .forgot to tell you. . .
the park owner said wait til after 8:30 to try and get through Hartford. . .yikes!
no worries. . .just take it slow, and make it through. . .
beautiful scenery in upstate New York. . .
and Pennsylvania. . .with little sparks of fall color thrown in. . .
we’re thinking the Shenandoah Valley may be
all out spectacular by the time we arrive there next month. . .
too bad all of Pennsylvania wasn’t as fabulous. . .
and certainly we understand the need for road construction cones. . .
but seriously. . .way out in the driving lane. . .
yup. . .we nailed a couple of ‘em. . .
but I can tell you for a fact. . .we weren’t the only ones to hit the crazy things. . .
they were mowed down all along the construction zone. . .
I’m sure those big semis were bowling ‘em over left and right. . .
well right anyway. . .they were busy trying to not drop
off the shoulder on the left!
but we were certainly rewarded at the end of a long driving day. . .
this is our view for the next three weeks as we sit at our computers. . .
‘til next time,
Janice and Dave
