Road Trip - Uniontown, PA to Western Maryland

Good morning,

We left Ft. Necessity (see yesterday's post) near Uniontown, Pennsylvania and continued our road trip East.
There was a freezing rain that didn't cause a problem on the roads, but most people were home for the day adding wood to the fireplace.
We continued to enjoy the winter wonderland.
The rain continued.  If you look carefully, you can see how the freezing rain/snow melted as it hit the windshield.
 The morning fog in the mountains was beautiful.
 This former church is now an antique store. 
 We are high in the mountains where the daytime thaw and night time freeze produced these gorgeous icicles.
 As we moved up and down the mountains, so changed the amount of snow.
 This is the pass through Sideling Hill. 
 There is a rest stop and museum here that is open during warmer months.  We have stopped here before and have seen the fabulous display about how this cut through the mountains was made.  There is more information about Sideling Hill on Wikipedia.  Click here and take a look at the second image on the right of the Wikipedia page.  It shows how huge and long the hill is and how this road and old US Route 40 cross it.  Until I saw the aerial view I didn't have a concept of how huge and long the hill is.

 More pretty ice.  :)  I love these patterns.  They give me ideas for knitting patterns.  ;)
 We continued traveling East.  Above you see a Christmas tree farm.

Enjoy,

 Lois

That ice! Amazing! Don't think I have ever seen it quite like that. And for some reason I love the third shot down...
