We’re staying at the Lower Lake Campground in Promised Land State Park, one of Pennsylvania’s earliest state parks. Apparently Shakers bought this land from the British Crown here in the land established by William Penn for religious freedom. It seems the Shakers never settled here but sold the land to a lumber company that clear cut it. The state of Pennsylvania finally acquired the land in 1902. It’s been open to the public since 1905 and was the site of much CCC improvement during the Great Depression.

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
