New England Fall Foliage 2016 Trip Part 3

I kept meaning to update this sooner, but life gets in the way.  After leaving Acadia, we decided to make a trip down through the Shenandoah Valley, Gettysburg, and a stop at Harper's Ferry.  

The Shenandoah Valley (Blue Ridge Parkway) was a nice drive, but not very photogenic.  Too many folks and a lot of trees in the way, so pics were really not that great.  Here are a few.

 Gettysburg, PA is a great Military Park.  I would highly suggest you check it out.

Timing is everything.  Getting the chance to pull the Avalair in front of the monuments is few and far between.

Which one of these is not like the other?  This little obsession is what drives us.
 Harpers Ferry was a pretty cool little town in West Virginia.  They shuttle you in by bus. It is a historical town the  that had a lot of significance during the Civil War.  Read up on it.

Some artsy pics I took of the church.  It's really awesome.

 The rest of the trip was pretty benign.  We were getting tired, so we hammered down and drive through from Pigeon Forge back to OKC.  It was a LONG, hard drive.

New England Fall foliage trip 2016 Part 2

On the way back from Acadia, we did some back road cruising.
Found some cool light houses and other awesome sights.

Never been in a lighthouse.........until now.

 I always wondered about the light filament.  This one was the original crystal that was built back in the 1800's.

It was retrofitted to accept the later styled, electric filament.

I have way too many pics.  Part 3 coming up soon.
