    We’d just left Leonard Harris State Park and had lunch when we saw the sign for Penn’s Cave. The sign was a vintage appearing sign, white background with green and red lettering, something you’d of seen in the 50s or 60s while traveling. No address. We had to pull out the GPS and search for it to figure out it was 2.5 hours south of where we were at. We’d already driven 1.5 hours north of Williamsport that morning. Deciding a cave was worth it and that we were being tourists we went for it.

    We took back roads for the most part, winding and weaving through the mountains, past creeks and tiny towns that made me wonder where on earth they drove to get gas for their cars. We barely saw any gas stations on the road we took. Further south we found ourselves entering Amish country, complete with buggies and beards. It was pretty exciting! I kept trying to guess which houses might possibly be theirs, looking for the homes without cars, and buggies pulled into barns and sheds.

    It was definitely an interesting cave tour, but I am spoiled by Longhorn Cavern State Park here in Texas. The difference in tours was that one is privately run (Penn’s) and the other is state run, which I felt could be seen in the tour guides. The state run one was better in my opinion. But, the highlight was that the cave tour at Penn’s Cave was on the water and something worth seeing if in the State College/Williamsport area of Pennsylvania.
