A Trip to Johnstown, PA

Come with us to Johnstown...

...the scene of one of the worst disasters in U.S. History - the Johnstown Flood.

Before we leave, breakfast.

Wondering about the hard hat? He told us he wasn't scared, just taking precautions.

Precautions needed... But I am getting ahead of myself.

Modern Day Johnstown

The book that brought us here.

If I didn't mention Sally, our excellent guide at the museum, and if I didn't tell you that her grandmother was one of the survivors of the flood, and if I didn't post a photo of her... Dad would not approve of this post. :)

Actual flood water - boy, did that get attention.

This tree was one of the most popular sites for photographers back then.

It's still a popular sight today.

High King Peter

Which means that there are only two possible names for the lady sitting beside him.

More things reminiscent of Narnia.

I would say that the kings and queens probably sat in order of age. That makes Candace...
