Sunday Drive: Warren to Benezette

Bob and I went for a drive yesterday.  We were gone all day and covered a little more than 200 miles.  We drove along the Clarion River; through Brookville, DuBois and Reynoldsville; saw elk in Benezette and ate an early dinner in St. Marys before heading back home.

This blog post shares photographs taken during our drive from our hometown (Warren, PA) to Benezette, PA.  This portion of our drive is highlighted in the following map.

According to a Wikipedia article, the Clarion River is formed at Johnsonburg at the confluence of the East Branch and West Branch Clarion rivers. It flows generally southwest for about 110 miles, past the towns of Ridgway and Clarion, to join the Allegheny River. The name Clarion was given by surveyor Daniel Stanard in 1817 who thought the water sounded like a distant bird of the same name.

From River Road we drove over the Clarion River and continued following Rt. 36 to Brookville, PA.

From Brookville we followed Routes 322, 950, 219, 255 and 555 through Reynoldsville, DuBois, and Penfield to Benezette.  The only stop we made, before reaching Benezette, was in Reynoldsville.

    Great photos Linda and I love how you were able to remove the lines at the old gas station. They can be a photographer’s biggest peeve. That old gas station is wonderful! I look forward to your second post on this trip.
