I just love the drive up the river on route 147! It's a small quiet two-lane highway, with these beautiful old sycamore trees on each side of the road for miles. They were planted after the Great War (WW1) to commemorate the men who were lost in battle.
The views of the river at this time of the year are rather dreary, because the hills on the opposite banks are still brown. Once everything turns green, it's lovely. The Susquehanna is a large flat river. Many places it seems like you could almost wade across. Yesterday the water was high and rapidly flowing.
Then on to Millersburg. This is the gazebo on the town square.
All of whom live slightly north east of Millersburg in the Lykens Valley. This is an area of lovely rolling hills and well-maintained farms, many are owned by Amish people. And numerous churches. It is sooo peaceful!
