Fire, Earth and Water

Things seen while driving around the gorgeous commonwealth:

While driving down to Reading we saw this along Route #61 in Berks County. The burning structure is a car dealership. What with the current state of the automobile market this seems to be a fortuitous way of getting out of the business -- at least if the owner had adequate insurance.

This is from Indian Echo Cave near Hershey in Derry Township, Dauphin County

And this is Ethel Springs Lake in Derry Township, Westmoreland County. In the background, Derry Borough and Chestnut Ridge.

Municipalities like Derry, Tyrone, Donegal and such testify to the large Scotch/Irish element among Pennsylvania's early settlers.
