Off to the woods we go

We are evaluating the old family homestead along the Allegheny River.  We are finally in this position because of the new Escape, which is all we hoped it would be.  The weather is finally warm enough to go to the "Woods", land which has been in Lew's family for generations.This area is on a north facing mountain with the view of the Allegheny River.    His Dad retired here and built the house we are evaluating.  We will write more about that with pics in another blog. This is the "road" that goes from the house to the top of the "mountain."
This one is about our wonderful Escape.  It crawled up the mountain side with GLEE.  Lew had to stop to cut some brush in the way.

 Here we are at the top where the strip mining occurred in 1990.  You can read about that in our daughter's blog, A Love Letter to Wind Turbines.

I love our new Escape.  It will take us up and down the mountain with the trailer.  More on the Woods another day.
