With the freedom of no meetings on the horizon this week, this afternoon I decided to make an impromptu trip home (to my parent's house) in Washington, PA. Ever since we moved from Charleston to Washington in 1982, I-79 has been familiar territory to our family, traveled on no less than ten times per year (round trip) by all of us collectively. I make the trip up and back at least four times a year. We've all memorized its exits and landmarks, and at least for me it's so familiar it doesn't seem like I'm even on a trip.

Here's a mini photo series on the drive north on I-79 Sunday afternoon, with a short diversion along Oil Creek from Burnsville to Roanoke.

No Disneyworld in Orlando on Oil Creek, but there is this cool church along the railroad tracks.

Many of the hills in southwestern Pennsylvania are open fields rather than completely forested.
