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.

Off the top of my head I do not think that Lucy had dark hair. So that leaves....

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