its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Oct. 24 - Buffalo Valley Rail Trail

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions.” ―Albert Einstein
The weather has finally cleared up and we've been able to get out and do a little exploring. This area of Pennsylvania is predominately farmland...beautiful farmland with picture perfect farms. Today we rode our bikes along the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail. The trail runs 9.5 miles between Lewisburg and Mifflinburg. The trail transects the heart of Union County's Buffalo Valley, showcasing the rich agricultural heritage and working farms along with the quaint small towns. The trail follows the route of a railroad that once ran from Montandon to Bellefonte in Centre County, crossing through Union County. The rail line was a key part of the valley's transportation network from 1853 until 1982. The rail trail opened in 2011.

Some of the farmland near the little town of Vicksburg, about halfway between Lewisburg and Mifflinburg.
The trail ends in Muffinburg right past the Rusty Rail Brewery. We had been to lunch here the day before and decided we deserved a beer before we headed back...9 miles. What a perfect place for this wonderful brewery.
The Vicksburg Buggy Shop.
Just a few of the beautiful trees we saw.
