    I like this one the best for some reason. Maybe it's the blurred speed sign in the foreground.

    lol I thought it was beautiful, I didn't really expect to see so much farmland, but that was the first time I've ever made that drive; I could see how it could be a pretty boring drive after the first time.

    oh and i love pennsylvania for some reason...the old steel mill towns have the worst fucking stench and theres a haze that hangs over them that makes it hard to breathe, but theres something kinda romantic about them....i have no idea why i'm romantisizing towns that have suffered economic collapse. Amish country is really beautiful too, and I think the Amish are kinda bad ass. Also love the old Dutch style farmhouses. So overall I'm definitely a fan of the state of PA. i'll leave you all with a weird ass billy joel video about allentown, pa.

    My uncle lived in Allentown for most of my life.

    I take back my Pennsylvania is a drag comment. I always have a bad prejudice because it is very commonly overcast or cloudy, but I am here right now at my uncles place in the South East region, it was a beautiful for most of the day. He moved from Allen Town...to Somewhere else...to Sunbury...to Mercersburg in Franklin County. The towns, the small towns and their shoppes are real real nice in this state truly, and I definitely love the hilly region, I'll probably come skiing here in February. Lots of hip people around the state too, in these little towners.
