Wellsboro street sign for the Grand Canyon

Exploring the Pine Creek Gorge Area

We have been off the grid for awhile so we drove to Wellsboro, a lovely Victorian lumber town on historic US Highway 6. Wellsboro has lots of historic building and gas lights down the center of the main street. We walked around town noting that it was extremely quiet and many businesses closed at 3:00 pm on Saturday. There were three brightly painted pianos on the sidewalks inviting people to stop and play them.

We visited a sort of indoor micro-mall and had turkey salads for lunch. It was our first and only restaurant meal on this trip.

Next we explored some side roads near Pine Creek Gorge and visited Colton Point State Park which is on the opposite side of the creek from Leonard Harrison. Colton Point is a primitive campground and sites 21, 22 and 25 look suitable for a camper.

We went back to Leonard Harrison for the night and grilled bison burgers with camper potato salad for dinner.
