Shenk's Ferry Wildflower Preserve

Conestoga, Pennsylvania

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”

― Rachel Carson

This same tunnel with the Enola Low Grade Line running above but taken by my husband's Great Grandfather, John A. Rineer, in 1919.

The Shenk's Ferry Hotel no longer stands.
