Sunday and a Trip to Valley Forge

On Sunday in the Intercourse area there is absolutely nothing open on Sunday, so this was a perfect time for us to visit Valley Forge. It is only about 45 miles from where we are staying. As a National Historic Park I have always wanted to visit there and it just never fit into our schedule. I had no idea just how large of an area it was.

It is 5.4 sq miles in size and has a Visitors Center, walking trails, reconstructed cabins depicting the 6 month encampment of the Continental Army. There was a statue of General Wayne, and a Memorial Arch and beautiful Chapel. There were lots of people walking the trails, as well as cars driving around the park. We were one of the ones driving around the park, not walking. It was about 90 degrees and a little to warm for any serious hiking.

Reconstructed cabins. Each state in the Continental Army had their cabins together.

A statue of George Washington in the Visitor's Center.

Statue of General Wayne.


After our visit was stopped by Friendly's for a nice lunch and then back to Intercourse. David spent the afternoon watching the NASCAR race while I drove over to the 2 outlet mall in Lancaster and bought 2 new pair of Sketchers since I was going to be standing on my feet all next week at my meeting.
