We went for a drive yesterday, when Bob came home from work (3:30 pm). We drove, first, to a dead end street alongside the Allegheny River here in Warren PA. One of Bob’s coworkers told Bob that he sees an eagle often, sitting in a tree on one of the river islands. We didn’t see an eagle.
Leaving the riverside, we drove along the eastern side of the Allegheny Reservoir and through Allegany State Park. We didn’t see any wildlife, as we drove PA Route 59, PA Route 321, PA Route 346 or NY Route 280. I am glad that Bob decided to add a drive through Allegany State Park, as we saw 14 deer at various places in the park.
Leaving Allegany State Park, via the Red House Exit, we took I-86 to the Steamburg NY exit and drove along the western side of the Allegheny Reservoir. We saw eight more deer, during this portion of the drive. All total, we saw 19 deer!
We stopped at Arby’s for dinner. Bob had a salad with a cookie. I had a beef ‘n cheddar sandwich with curly fries and a mint chocolate shake. The shake is available only for a limited time each year. It is a once-a-year treat for me.
We returned home around 7:30 pm.
