Touring Western Pennsylvania NPS Sites

We awoke this morning, grabbed breakfast in the hotel and headed east into Maryland, then north into Pennsylvania. We made it to our first destination, Flight 93 Memorial by 11 am. It is a somber place, and very cold and windy as well. There's not much there yet, but hopefully they will begin construction of a permanent memorial soon. After Flight 93 we moved on to another somber National Park Service unit, Johnstown Flood National Memorial. Finally, after lunch, we visited the Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site before heading further east to Harrisburg.
