VOLANT MILL

& THE NESHANNOCK RIVER

 

October 15, 2010

 

Carl and I were on our way to Tara, a southern plantation inn in northwestern Pennsylvania,

and stopped by Volant Mill. We've been here a few times in the past, but not since I've had

my digital camera. It's an old, white mill at the edge of the Amish area in that part of the

state and has been made into a wonderful 3-storied gift shop.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Behind the mill is the Neshannock River and I walked back there to take some more pictures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love old trees that tell stories in their wounds.

 

 

 

Leaving Volant on 208 we drove west through New Wilmington and the heart of the Amish area. The

roads have wide shoulders here for the Amish drivers.

 

 

I took this out the windshield of a nice Amish farm. You can always tell if they're really 'plain' because, like in this one,

there are no electric wires going to them.

 

ON TO TARA
