I arrived today in this lovely region. Tomorrow I give a talk to area trustees. The day after that, to trustees and directors closer to Altoona.
I was met by Cambria County Library Director Lyn Meek, Mary Lou Repsher, and Linda Young. In addition to taking me to a fine dinner leavened by fine conversation, they also took me to the high, wooded hills above the river valley. Two pictures:
First, the "incline" - a device to haul up a cage large enough for two cars along steep rails. Think an enormous cable.
Then, the amazing view of the town from atop the selfsame hill. Below, the Stoneycreek River.
