Canton PA

Every New Years, for the better part of 10 years I’ve been vacationing in a small town in Northern PA called Canton. It’s a sleepy little one light town that has a small main street, a thrift store, a Pharmacy, a hardware store, a movie theater, a grocery store and a whole lot of peacefulness and quiet. Population: 1,684. There are mountains everywhere and farms and Amish. This year we had a full house, 19 of us at one point. 10 kids, from age 16 to less than one, and 10 adults. Oh and two dogs.

Several of the usual suspects we absent and missed this year, but those who were able to come had a wonderful time. We stay at the Jones Compound, a 80 acre 19th century 7 bedroom chalet type house. It’s warm, spacious, and very comfortable. The kids do, what kids do, play video games, read books, watch DVD’s and play with toys. The rest of us did what ever we wanted until it was time to come together for meals. For me, I spent time playing guitar, reading and smoking cigars. And when I felt like it, I took my camera out to see what I could see…

Here are a few pictures.
