Today I was able to earn my way back into Mr. Trucker's good graces. You may remember me posting early last month about Emlenton, PA. That is the storybook looking village on the banks of the Alleghany River that you can see from way up high on the Emlenton I-80 bridge. I missed getting any decent pictures of it last month because I had nearly worn out the batteries in my camera in the miles leading up to it, and Mr. Trucker was gravely disappointed in me.
Today Mr. Trucker determined that we were going to get some good shots of Emlenton if it killed us. First, we had to wake up at the world's most disgusting truckstop in Lake Station, IN, and drive out of Indiana, where I saw my first snow of the season
|Snow in Indiana|
Then we had to drive across Ohio
|the Meander Reservoir in Ohio|
|Here's our exit|
|the descent into Emlenton|
It was quite a steep descent, complicated by a little bit of road construction
|Great! Put a stop sign in the MIDDLE of a steep downhill grade.|
|This is the bridge we still have to go up and over!|
The town is absolutely adorable! I think I may have to move there, they have all the necessary services
|Main drag in Emlenton, PA|
|Emlenton, PA business district|
After cruising the main drag (can you call it cruising in an 18 wheeler?), we got back on I-80 heading west this time and I managed to get off these shots

|I happen to know that the Lemon Meringue is good!|
So, hope you enjoyed our little excursion! We're pressing on now to make it to the Flying J in Mill Hall, PA for the night so that we'll be within shouting distance of our delivery tomorrow in Fogelsville (yesterday I mistakenly called it Fogelville).
