My next stop was in Intercourse, PA. I know strange name, but that’s the name of the town! May 6 – 13 I stayed at Beacon Hill Campground, which was surrounded by farms. This old truck was at the entrance to the campground.
I love looking at farms, this one was just across from the campground.
Depending on the wind, the manure smell could be interesting. Actually one day I had gone somewhere and left the fans on in the RV, so that it was pulling air from the outside into the RV. When I got back to the RV, my propane detector was going off. I immediately opened the door and it smelled as though several cows had been living in my RV. After a few minutes it aired out and no more alarm. I suppose it was methane?? It really wasn’t bad, you got used to the smell very quickly.
There are a lot of covered bridges in the area. I started a tour of about 8 of them, but the weather messed up my plans. I only got to 3 of them before I decided it wasn’t worth driving around in a storm!
Longwood Gardens was not too far from the campground, so I decided to visit one day. It is a beautiful garden with several fountains and lots of flowers.
You can see the finished products at http://www.longwoodgardens.org/ The lights are in picture 3 of the automatic rotating pictures.
I enjoyed driving and biking the back roads looking at the farms.
My next stop was Woodland, PA.
