We made it to the first college on our Great College Tour. We were blessed with amazingly beautiful weather. One of the professors told us that last year at this time it was very cold and rainy. Today it must have been in the 70s. What a beautiful campus!
As you can see, the leaves were at their peak of color. The whole strip through central Pennsylvania was this way, and only changed to mostly greens when we dropped south of Breezewood later in the day. Grandpa and I entertained Soren while his dad and Anna went on the official college tour. Actually, Soren entertains himself. He found a large elastic band on the ground which kept him occupied for a long time, then noticed acorns all around. He said he was stuffing 'coconuts' in his pocket, until he realized that they were acorns. :-)
The bronze man, rather stiff in his later years. Soren attempting to pick his nose. (Three year old boys are so easy to entertain!) :-)
Anna and her dad, with his post-Army physique pose. LOL Anna really enjoyed this campus, but then - who wouldn't!
Kevin and Soren on the side door steps of the beautiful chapel.
Some of the fall colors I couldn't resist. There's something about Pennsylvania barns that draw me to my camera. So many photo opportunities I missed along the way because we were driving down the Turnpike, and for some reason Kevin wouldn't stop so I could take pictures! ;-)
Who can resist reflections this gorgeous! This, like the previous pic, was taken from the campus.
Anna and Gpa, waiting until it was time for her to sit in on a class.
Outside the chapel - again.
The steps and bridge lead across the river to the lower campus where the gymnasium and athletic fields are located.

Inside the chapel, just a part of the huge stained glass window.
Soren, fascinated with acorns, pine needles, and stones.
