Looks like a great ride. I have friends that have a vacation home in Slate Run which is just a few miles from there, but I've never been to that park, but it's on my list now. Thanks for the pics...

jdgw, You were close to me & Charlie while you were there. Fueled up at that Shell station many times. Thanks for the ride report & isn't the run up to the top neat (albeit slow)? I have to dig up some old pics when we were there. The weather wasn't as nice but a good time anyway.

Wow. I was up in Lewisburg, PA yesterday myself. We probably missed each other by 30 miles or so. Speaking of deer strikes...... I crossed over the river into Virginia about 8:45 yesterday on US 15 with a minivan ahead of me with traffic moving about 40 mph. I was about four car lengths distance behind the van. Then I saw the deer running full steam from the opposite shoulder, he or she didn't look both ways. Yes sir ! The deer and the van made contact. Driver ok, front of the van not ok, albeit drivable. As for the deer.... he or she ended up back on the shoulder from where it bolted across. I checked on the driver and got a thumbs up so I had to continue.
