Today was the first day of trout season in this part of Pennsylvania. (the season started 2 weeks ago in southeast PA) It was only in the upper 30's and windy and after all of the rain we had yesterday the creeks were high and very fast which made for some tough fishing. The picture below is usually a fantastic place for trout but was basically unfishable today.

Upstream, from where I took the pic, another smaller stream called Wells Creek ran a bit lower and slower. I found a good spot under a railroad bridge where the water was calm.

Image

All that came out of that hole was a lowly sucker.

Image

Even though I only live 15 miles away from it, I never visited the Flight 93 National Memorial. So, since I was close to it, I thought I would check it out.

Across Route 30 from the National Memorial is a brand new Game Lands that were donated to the PA Game Commission for public hunting and trapping use.

The wall is basically a marble marker with the names of each person who died on that flight. It's a pretty subdued atmosphere at this place. I can still remember what I was doing that day almost 12 years ago. I was working on some air conditioning units on a roof of a new warehouse about 40 miles east of here. I had no clue what was going on until I got off the roof for lunch. My dad's brother and sister in-law were killed in a car crash the day before and I just found out about it the same time I found out about this. I had to call my parents and let them know what happened and they were in Quebec at the time and they had a tough time getting back into the country. It was a real bad day.

We had a lot of people spend a few extra days in Canada right then. I was helping a neighbor combine and he quit to watch the news all day. I combined and hauled grain :roll: . The sky's became quiet and that is what I remember most as that was the biggest effect on me at the time.
