Friendship Hill

We had a nice sunny day here yesterday and went to a nearby state park "Friendship Hill" which was once the home of Albert Gallatin.  In the early 1800s, he was Secretary of the Treasury to Thomas Jefferson and rode horseback from this home near Point Marion, Pennsylvania to Washington, DC.............a distance of over 200 miles.  There are so many interesting stories here, but the winter wind was blowing and we decided we'd go back in April when the wildflowers are blooming and do more.

I modeled my journaling block after the time line on the park's display.

I liked the sentiment on this 7 Gypsies stamp: "We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment".
 We don't have to travel far to find interesting places to photograph!
