36 * The University Creamery!  Home to some of the best ice cream in the world. * 612 x 408 * (42KB)
37 * Our beloved Beaver Stadium, home of our nationally recognized football team, the Nittany Lions.  Sadly, having been inside this massive stadium made my experience inside the Roman Colloseum rather disappointing - Beaver Stadium is about 3 times larger!  It was designed to hold approximately 100,000 people - roughly the same figure as the population of State College - and is usually full on game days. * 612 x 408 * (23KB)
38 * The Bryce Jordan Center, our indoor sports facility and venue for major performing artists.  I got to see Bush and Moby perform live here, but I've missed more good bands than I've seen!  Note Mt. Nittany in the background. * 612 x 408 * (23KB)
39 * Now we leave Penn State campus and head out for the countryside on our way to my parents' house.  From the hill crest on Whitehall Rd. there is a great view of Mt. Nittany.  This mountain is the inspiration for local legends and contains a very popular hiking trail for a view of the town. * 612 x 408 * (26KB)
40 * See the billboard in the trees?  Where this road now lies used to be a baseball field, one that I played on for seven years in my childhood.  Gill Field, I miss you. * 612 x 408 * (27KB)
41 * This is a gigantic gas station/convenience store located on the corner of College Ave. & Whitehall Rd.  When it was built, it was the largest Uni-Mart in the entire country.  Along with gas and snacks, it houses a bagel shop, a Burger King, a Chinese restaurant, a postal center, and a car wash.  Unfortunately, it was built over top of a historic landmark.  Oops, oh well.... * 612 x 408 * (24KB)

42 * Across the street from the Uni-Mart is Harner Farm, a great local food store. * 612 x 408 * (38KB)
43 * Here's another view of Harner's.  The apples and corn they grow here are quite good. * 612 x 408 * (33KB)
44 * Fields of apple trees, with the mountains in the background.  State College lies in a valley (named Happy Valley, which in itself is a humorous story) amongst the Appalachian mountains - the ones pictured here are the Tusseys. * 612 x 408 * (28KB)
45 * Tractor crossing! * 408 x 612 * (43KB)
46 * Whitehall Road.  Long, pretty, and green!  I think you drive through about 10 different farms on this road on the way to my parents' house. * 612 x 408 * (21KB)
47 * Cornfields!  This is a very common sight once you get out of the downtown area. * 612 x 408 * (34KB)

48 * A typical house along Whitehall Rd.  Lots of open space, and a huge yard.  Nice mountains! * 612 x 408 * (24KB)
49 * Another typical house along Whitehall. * 612 x 408 * (25KB)
50 * This is Kocher Farm, a horse ranch very near to my parents' house. * 612 x 408 * (25KB)
51 * Say hello to my sister, Christy!  She is standing in front of the church where she runs her own preschool.  The name of the church is Fairbrook, just like my neighborhood. * 612 x 408 * (33KB)
52 * Greet the cows on your way by! * 612 x 408 * (47KB)
53 * This is the wetlands on the corner near my parents' house.  At night during the spring, you can hear the
