Pennsylvania

After spending a hectic week in New York City for Fashion Week, I retreated to Pennsylvania via train. I was blown away by my very first visit to this state: miles and miles of beautiful barns and farm houses, rolling mountains, animals, antique and thrift stores, Amish country, and a mix of 70 degree and snowy weather!

    I’ve lived all my life in PA, and I never want to leave. Even living in Pittsburgh now I can drive a few minutes and be at a farm. ❤

    Love these photos! You definitely captured PA very well! You said you were in Amish country…so were you in Lancaster? It’s so nice out there! That barn looks very familiar, but then again, there are a lot of barns similar to that one near me!

    Yes Chelsea I was in Lancaster county. I think the Amish pics are near the town of Intercourse. What’s up with the names of their towns Blue Ball and Intercourse? Honestly…WTF

  27. I’m also from PA (Philly area) and haven’t been to Lancaster in years. The best thing I love about where I live is I’m couple hours from Nyc and DC or the beach or mountains. You’re really in the middle of it all ha.

    Wow; I’ve never been back east, spent my whole life out on the west coast, mostly in the rain. It looks amazing – just like you’d think it *should*

    and I think that’s a long-haired buffalo you saw!

    The breed are called ‘Highland Cattle’. I’ve only ever heard them referred to in the plural like that, so I’m not sure if you’d call him a Highland Bullock? They have beautiful red coats, and eventually amazing wide sweeping horns. My Mum’s family used to raise them in the 60’s.

    Beautiful pictures, thank you.

    Soooo Nice. My grandson’s finance sent them to me. It was exciting as I scrolled down and saw my barn and then the next photo ID the location. Thanks for pointing out beauty so near – buildings and the scenery. That’s why I wouldn’t live anywhere but York County, PA.
