Ida's
Notebook
by
Ida Risser
After the rush and bustle of
Christmas activities which includ
ed making two big meals for visit
ing family members, I finally get a
chance to sit down and reminisce.
Recently, I read a travel article
on Watkins Glen in New York. It
reminded me of the first time that
I saw this geological wonder. In
1928 my Shreiner grandparents
took a several day trip and took me
along with them.
My grandfather had a new
Buick and as it was summer, we
rode in the open car. If it rained, I
lay on the floor in the back and
covered myself with a blanket. We

took along a supply of food and
only stopped at the grocery store
for more provisions. It was a
leisurely drive through New
York’s vineyards.
When we arrived my grand
mother did not think that she could
make the 832 steps to the top of
the gorge and so a taxi took her to
the top while I and my grandfather
and aunt walked. The 1 1/2 miles
long trail goes through three short
tunnels and behind three water
falls. The largest waterfall is 60
foot Central Cascade. The narrow
creek drops 545 feet through cliffs
of shale.

Agriculture From A To
HARRISBURG (Dauphin Co.)

indoor agricultural exposition in
the country, opens this week.

expected to visit the free show

One night we stayed in a hotel
on the main street of a small town
and it was so noisy that we had a
hard time falling asleep. And, the
one bed was unstable with a head
board and a footboard that both
leaned toward each other. We
feared it would collapse.
This trip is one of my first
memories of sleeping away from
home. But it is a pleasant memory
and surpasses more recent visits to
the same 800-acre park that
opened to the public in 1863. It is
a trip worth taking.
