A group of us went to an old inn that is located 
in the Blue Mountains of Perry County, Landisburg, Pa.
It is situated along Shermans Creek
 that in this particular area includes 6 warm springs 
the largest of which is nearby.
It was first warranted in 1793, destroyed by fire and rebuilt 
just after the Civil War. 

The Inn has a very interesting history that I was going to share
 but it is lengthy and copywrited.
 If you want to read about it, 
"Google" "Warm Springs Lodge Sherman Creek".
You won't be dissapointed.
The history includes lovers duels with swords and pistols, indians, 
and it's transition to it's present state.
It was first opened as a Spa. 

I believe this was a porch that has since been enclosed.
The history includes many old pictures
 depicting the changes it has undergone.
The area has a lot of wildlife for hunting and fishing.
Rare birds have been seen here 
making it a favorite haunt of  Audubon Society members.

You can see Shermans Creek in the background.
It's much more impressive further down.
The ride up was beautiful with all the colors of Autumn.

It's a beautiful area with a lot of wildlife for hunting and fishing.
Rare birds have been seen here 
making it a favorite haunt of  Audubon Society members. 

Food was served family style
 with a salad bar and Apple Pie for dessert.
I don't think anyone left hungry.

Missy, That sounds like a wonderful time with friends. I do not think there is one ugly view in all of your state during fall. So many beautiful trees. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

What a great place to visit, Missy! I have to look that up because even though I was born/raised in PA I am not sure exactly where this is located. I love places like this that have a history though. Thanks for the info and pictures. xo Diana
