Into The Woods (Excerpt)
Copyright 2012 Christopher M. Charlier

       It didn't end like he expected, in fact, life for most everyone else went on as it always had. There was no meteor strike or power grid failure. No rioting in the streets. Life just went on without him. It wasn't the end of the world as we know it, it was the end of the world as he knew it. It happened so fast, it was almost unbelievable, he had moved to a new town a few months ago, he had a good job, a decent apartment and some money in the bank. And all at once it was gone. His job, his apartment, all gone in a matter of days.

      It started with the flood, it rained for three days straight, not just rained but poured rain. After the second day, while Daniel was at work, the river overflowed and filled his apartment with thick muddy water. He didn't even know there was a problem until the power went out. They sent everyone home, Daniel didn't have a car, he always took the bus to and from work but because of the flooding, no buses were running. A coworker dropped him off as close as he could get him to home. Daniel could see his apartment building, the water was up to the middle of the second floor, his apartment was on the first.

Views of The Pennsylvania Grand Canyon

A week or so ago, my wife and I decided to combine two of our favorite past times, the outdoors and motorcycling.  We took a ride down to Leonard Harrison State Park just outside of Wellsboro, PA.

The Pennsylvania Grand Canyon is actually the Pine Creek Gorge, and some of the best views are from Leonard Harrison.

It's also nearby where George Washington Sears (Better known as "Nessmuk") lived.  There's a sign in the parking area about him.

Here's a few other pictures my wife took, click on any of them to see them full size...

Google will you all the information you need if you want to learn more about the PA Grand Canyon, It's a beautiful area with a whole lot to do.
Thanks for reading!
