Westward, ho!


Looking west toward Troy. You can see the Wind Farm on top of Armenia Mountain.


I am not sure which direction this view is facing. It is from the last lookout before you get to the top of the mountain.

Mt. Pisgah County Park Scenic Views




A look at some of the valleys as seen from the top of Mt. Pisgah, elevation 2,260 feet, prominence 1000 feet. This is looking towards Athens, East Smithfield and Towanda. You can see where the river flows.

According to Wikipedia: During the late 19th century, this mountain was a favorite summer resot from those in eastern cities, even as far away as Chicago. Visitors were able to stay at a mountaintip hotel, which featured a 100-foot observation tower. The views could reach as far as Susquehanna County on a clear day.
