I packed up my wife and child and headed out to the area near Warren, PA and the Kinzua Dam last week for some rest and relaxation with my grandparents. Two days of relaxation were matched by two days of driving, but on balance, we had a lot of fun.
We basically veged out on Wednesday, hanging out on the front lawn of the river house my grandparents had rented for the summer. The view above was what met us each time we looked out the front windows of the house.
Thursday, my grandfather took us to the Kinzua Dam and showed us around.
Unfortunately, the lower part of the dam was closed to tourists following the terrorist acts of 9/11, so the only portions of the dam that we could see were visible from the top of the dam and reservoir.
We then headed up the river a bit to take in the grandeur of the reservoir.
We piled back in to the car and headed south to Titusville, my parents’ old hometown for a bit of a tour and a visit to the Drake Oil Well Museum.
Friday, we packed up, said our goodbyes and headed back home.
As the title above says, a good time was had by all.
