Lancaster, PA

A few weeks ago we took a very last minute mini-vacation to Pennsylvania. We started off at Hershey Park for two days and then headed to Lancaster for the next three days.
Just outside Hershey, is Indian Echo Caverns. Before going into the caverns the boys panned for gold!





There was this lake, I guess you would call it, inside the caverns, where the water was this beautiful green/blue color. The tour guide said it used to be just clear water but for years, tourists threw pennies in the water to make wishes and the copper turned the water this beautiful color.




The rest of my pictures are from around beautiful Lancaster County where it is just a peaceful and serene as it looks!

I love PA. My husband's grandfather had a farm in Wrightsville. It was such a gorgeous piece of land and a pre-civil war home. Great photos.

The Amish prefer their pictures not be taken. Please have more consideration in the future.
