While we were in Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving, we went on one little excursion to a nearby historical tower. It's referred to as the Indian Tower, but I feel slightly awkward calling it that when it was actually built and used by Moravians, not Indians. The whole valley and surrounding areas were settled by Moravians back in the day, so there are a lot of historical sites and churches remaining. ( As far as I understand, they're one of those European Protestant groups that came to America to escape religious persecution and proselyte to Indian groups)
It was a surprisingly quick drive over to the tower, although it's surrounded by open land on all sides which makes it feel a lot more secluded than it really is. It was kind of fun to climb to the top and see the valley and rolling hills below. Unfortunately a bunch of walls had been graffitied, and it wasn't the cool artistic kind. I think we did a pretty good job of strategically cutting out the unsightly stuff.
I'm starting to feel like I live for our trips out to Pennsylvania. I love the beautiful verdant hills and fields, the fresh air, and twisting wooded roads so much, and I can't believe how many cool things there are to do and see. We're so lucky Ryan's aunt and uncle are so kind to lend us their car when we visit. I kind of can't wait to move out of Manhattan. In case you couldn't already tell, I'm completely uninspired by the cityscape, and my blog and photography suffers a little too palpably when I'm stuck there for too long. I always jump at the chance to get out in the open and the wild to frolic and capture how it feels.
tights- we love colors
