I took the road through Allegany State Park to get to a teaching gig in Bradford. I stopped at Science Lake to eat my peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
A park history (click here) says the lake was created in 1926, along with the Allegany School of Natural History.
A roadside parking area makes access easy to the lake. Many feet on the shore have exposed the roots of the trees that hug the shoreline.
I find myself becoming more and more interested in the history of Allegany State Park.
