Well, I'm back home again. And my garden actually survived my absence - thanks to the remnants of a tropical storm coming through. One of the places we visited on our trip was part of the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Pennsylvania.

The scenery there is very beautiful. After eating lunch at "The Wild Side," we spent the afternoon walking around looking at the animals in the little zoo on the property.

Nemacolin is home to a white Buffalo, as well as a herd of the usual dark buffalo. This guy, named Lightening, is sacred to the Native Americans. He was perfectly content to let us take his picture, but when we started photographing his female (a dark buffalo named Thunder), he got up and herded her away from us!

There is also a tiny airplane museum, and an "Auto Toy Store," with amazing vintage automobiles for sale. I'm sorry I didn't get pictures of the planes or the cars. Just the landscape. (That fits a little better with a garden blog, right?)

One thing I find very interesting at Nemacolin is this portion of the Berlin Wall. Talk about a piece of history!

On the way "home," we stopped at an over-look off of the highway. It is an incredible view.

And when we got back "home" again in McHenry, Maryland, there was an absolutely gorgeous sunset.

Have a beautiful day!

Your buffalo looks an awful lot like a "high lan' coo," which if you ask David was one of my favorite parts of our trip to Scotland - seeing those furry beasts. Thank you for the trip down memory lane!
