Williamsport and Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon


It was time to head out of Dodge and take an adventure to Williamsport, Pennsylvania, and Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon.

Williamsport is a quiet, almost eerie town where there wasn’t a soul or dog on the street. In exploring the small town

I came upon the Otto Book Store, which is the oldest Independently owned bookstore in America. It was exciting to meet Nancy and Elisa who run the store. I ordered several copies of my Best-Selling and Award-Winning book Eat What You Want! Stop When You Want! A No-Diet, Weight-Loss Program to bring into their store.

Then it was off to experience The Hiawatha Paddlewheel Boat Cruise on a beautiful day!

The captain was kind and offered me the wheel as he explained the instruments’ panel.

Off to a quick dinner and stay at the Genetti Hotel, a 100-year-old establishment booked by local sports teams in the area and people visiting nearby universities.

After breakfast, we headed out to the Leonard Harrison and Colton Point state parks, which are on the opposite sides of Pine Creek Gorge known as the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania.

Here is a top view.

Luckily there was a food truck that only sold Maple Food Products.  After some Maple Cotton Candy, I sampled delicious  Maple Walnut Ice Cream.

The last part of this weekend adventure was a two-hour covered wagon tour through the lower part of the canyon along Pine Creek and the Pine Creek Rail Trails.

Here is the site.

Jerry and Ike were majestic and loveable.

Tonight was an entertaining concert by influential, gifted, and driven artists. We shall be hearing from them more and more as their sparkling careers continue to evolve. The band was solid, the sound balance was excellent, and the musicians seamlessly shifted through the demands and diverse styles of the songs.

Bullet Train

We’ve entered a dreamscape created by the collective minds of Monty Python, Quentin Tarantino, Guy Ritchie, and Stanley Kubrick. In this virtual world, we laugh at violence, wait for punchlines, root for our heroes, and experience larger-than-life events that can only occur in fantasies.
