Home from Maine 2022 Day 13 - Montgomeryville to Pomeroy, PA

 We are at the Stottsville Inn, which is in the middle of nowhere. It's about 30 miles east of the Susquehanna River, a bit south of US 30.

This is an old country inn. It has rooms and a nice restaurant, where we ate last night. I'm glad places like this still exist. The restaurant was pretty busy, possibly due to it being Fathers day.

It was a fairly short ride yesterday. We went 47 miles. We are not that far from home, so we can have 3 shorter days or two longer days. We have chosen the shorter day option.

I didn't take many pictures. It was mostly bike trail and a long stretch on US 30, which is ugly and not fun. The bike trail is paved rail trail, and it's really nice. 

SEPTA, the Philadelphia commuter rail, goes clear out to Parkersburg, which is about 40 miles from Philly. The SEPTA stations have a lot of new development. There are entire new self-contained towns with a ton of condos and Targets and Walmarts and chain restaurants. We had lunch at one of these, by Exton, which was an actual entire outlet mall in addition to the Walmart and Target. I am still puzzled about how this works economically. There were pirogis at the restaurant we ate at, which is pretty cool.

Here is the Strava track.
