We rented a cabin in the woods near Lake Raystown.  I’ve been told that it is the largest inland lake in Pennsylvania.  It’s shaped like a snake, yet has the beauty of a butterfly.

During out time there, we made our way to an overlook to enjoy the beauty.


There is some interesting history behind the lake.  We’ve heard stories that at the bottom of the lake is a town that was taken over by the Army Corp of Engineers in order to make the lake what it is today.  At the one end of the lake is a dam, which holds the millions of gallons of water.  I don’t know if the story is true, but I do know this – on a beautiful day, this view is gorgeous.


Every once in a while it’s wonderful to sit back and enjoy what the senses allow us to take in.
