Pennsylvania's Erie Coast
Jump ahead to the video
Pennsylvania's state outline has a curious feature, a tiny stub in the northwest corner that keeps the Keystone State from being land-locked. If you're traveling along the Erie Coast, like I was, this tiny panhandle provides a brief encounter with William Penn's namesake land.
I was in a hurry to pass through Pennsylvania, and the edge of New York, in order to get to Niagara Falls, where I planned to spend whatever time was left in Day 2. So, I didn't make any stops in Pennsylvania -- though I really should have. The truth is, as I crossed the state line, the landscape almost instantly became more interesting. I was suddenly catching the edge of the Allegheny Mountains, which added some ups and downs that weren't present in mostly-flat Ohio. As I drove by Erie, the biggest city in these parts, Interstate 90 skirted a hillside, allowing me to look down towards the city and the lake.
It was all quite beautiful, but as I said, I didn't devote much time to it. Instead, I took the freeway almost all the way across Erie County, turning off just before the New York line, for the trip up to the town of Northeast and the coast. So, in lieu of photos, enjoy this Drivelapse video which will take you from East Ashtabula, Ohio, into and through Pennsylvania's panhandle:
