Williamsport and Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon

It was time to head out of Dodge this past weekend and so I took an adventure to Williamsport, Pennsylvania and then headed to Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon.

On the first day of this overnight adventure we went to Williamsport. Williamsport is a very quiet, almost eerie type of town where there wasn’t a soul on the street and not even a dog and I am serious. But the good news is that in exploring the small town

I came upon the Otto Book Store which is the oldest Independently owned bookstore in America. It was very exciting for me to meet Nancy and Elisa who run the store and on the spot ordered several copies of my Best-Selling and Award-Winning book Eat What You Want! Stop When You Want! A No-Diet, Weight-Loss Program to bring into their store. That was a really exciting moment for me and here we are!

Then it was off to experience The Hiawatha Paddlewheel Boat Cruise. It was a gorgeous day and it was wonderful.

And the captain was very kind and Oh My GoodnessLol-offered me the wheel and explained all the instruments.

Then off to a quick dinner and we stayed at the Genetti Hotel, a 100 year old hotel which basically is booked by all the sports teams in the area and from not so far universities.

The next day after breakfast we headed out to the Leonard Harrison and Colton Point state parks which are on the opposite sides of Pine Creek Gorge also called the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania.

Here is a view down into the canyon.

And then lucky us, there was a food truck there that only sold Maple Food Products so after buying Maple Cotton Candy(yes, it’s as good as it sounds) I bought some Maple Walnut Ice-Cream which was great!!!

So the last part of this weekend adventure before heading back to the city was to experience a 2 hour covered wagon tour through the lower part of the canyon along Pine Creek and the Pine Creek Rail Trail. I had always wondered what it would be like to ride in a covered wagon, so I was really looking forward to the experience!

So here we are at the site.

And here’s the modern dayLol covered wagon from the back.

And now from the front.

And the 2 horses Jerry and Ike were so very majestic. I fell in love.
