A Very Scenic Drive

I was on my way to Bison Corral right outside of Schellsburg (Bedford County)
to get some bison burgers. .....which I love.
Had not been out there for quite sometime. When I rounded the corner and
approached the top of the hill I was astounded by this mural.
It was just beautiful


I came home and my friend Bird girl and I looked it up. Here is what we found.
The red white and blue L is for Lincoln Highway.
Four years ago the LHHC hired a professional firm to develop a plan
for marketing the Lincoln Highway. Included in this plan will be
fiberglass gas pumps and murals.
Go here to read more about it.

A close up shows a picture of the Grandview Ship hotel and the
1806 Historic church, both on Route 30.





Right across the road from the barn is the Bison Corral. A new addition since
I was there is this fiberglass gas pump.




If you are ever in the Bedford area check these places out. It is well worth the trip.
We did not see any Bison roaming around the fields. They were all hidden. But I have been there when you could see them. In October there will be a
13TH ANNUAL FALL FESTIVAL
October 6-7, 13-14, 2007 ... 10am - 6pm

I've just discovered your blog, and I'm so glad I did! I did a Google image search for photos of Schellsburg, PA... and it led me here.

I was born and raised in the Bedford/Somerset County area, and lived there up until Feb. of this year. My hubby and I moved to SC, and I have been terribly homesick for PA! Every now and then I get online and do a search... in hopes of finding glimpses of "home."

Thanks for these pics! They are wonderful! As the saying goes, "if I had a dollar for every time" I traveled that particular stretch of Route 30, I would be rich. I have an aunt and cousins who live in Shellsburg, and I have admired that barn more times than I can count.

I hope you post more pics soon! I'm going to check back often! :)
