8 days 1673 miles

My wife and I took a weeklong road trip this month. We camped in Loleta, Pennsylvania; spent a night in Niagara Falls; and hung out in Toronto, Canada.

Loleta – We enjoyed a peacefully quiet camping trip in the Allegheny National Forest. We ate grilled cheese and veggie brats over the fire, drank the local brew, and took a couple hikes on the nearby trails.

Niagara Falls –We had a great view of the falls from our hotel. Though we only stayed one day and night, we managed to see it all. In addition to seeing the falls (on both Canadian and U.S. sides), we visited a couple “off the beaten path” taverns and hung out with locals. The folks in the Wild Mushroom, on Victoria Avenue, made our stop enjoyable. They convinced us to visit the next door haunted house, which scared my wife to death. She chickened out just before we got to the end! Bauk Bauk, chicken..

Toronto was our last stop, and probably my favorite. It is the cleanest, friendliest, most racially diverse city I’ve ever visited. And they have the best hot dogs; vegetarians welcome.
After visiting the observation deck and standing on the glass floor, at 1,122 feet, of the CN tower, my wife and I walked through the downtown theater district. The Diesel Playhouse was showing “Evil Dead – the Musical”. We got tickets to the 7:30pm showing on Friday. Talk about hilarious. I highly recommend this show to anyone who can catch it. It has music, dancing, zombies, blood, gore and so much more.
Finally, I got a couple great shots of some street musicians (a hobby of mine). The one posted is of Joseph from South Africa.
