80% of our drive today was on I-80 through Pennsylvania and into Ohio. A preliminary look at the route confirmed my memory that there was very little to see or do along the highway. We hopped on the road and just a short ways out we saw a sign for the Patterson Great Falls National History Park.

A quick swerve into the exit lane and three minutes later we were in the parking lot. It was too early to get into the Visitor Center, so we have no stamps in our passports, but the view of the falls was really nice. We read the pamphlet and the outdoor information boards and made some great comparisons to the Lowell NHS.

I am so glad we stopped there, as the rest of the drive was 100% tree lined highway and periodic construction zones. We made good time to Grandma and Grandpa’s and arrived just as the dinner bell rang!
