Johnstown Pa. Trip

After watching the documentary on the Johnstown Pa. flood of 1889 I was flooded with emotion. I did enjoy the 2 hour trip from home through pretty farmland and following the Flight 93 Memorial Highway. After descending into downtown Johnstown where two bodies of water meet, it was easy to see why the city was devastated when a dam at the top of the mountain gave way. The stories of families lost were saddening. The highlight of the trip was riding the incline built after the flood to transport workers home.
