Snow up in the mountains

Hey guys... so since I was driving to Altoona yesterday and got stuck in a pretty wicked snow storm right up the road and then when I got to altoona I saw no snow I went up to the top of the Mountain today.
I drove up east route 22 until I got to the top of the Mountain to the Summit/Cresson exit and just drove... I then ended up in the town right west of it which was Gallitzin... I then saw a sign for Prince Gallitzin State Park and figured since I was in Galitzin anyways I may as well go that way. I drove, and drove, and then I stopped off and took some photo's... and then drove some more and felt that I went farther than 19 miles (that's what the sign said)... so the next time I pulled over I pulled out the trusty GPS unit and typed it in.
So since I was hungry I typed in Cresson into my GPS to get me to some food... I followed the GPS and what did I see... a HUGE Pink Sign that said '24 flavors'... I was esctatic... but it was a false alarm... there were christmas lights on it but the open sign wasn't up, there weren't any cars either.
But I'm driving up this BEAUTIFUL road and the houses are gorgous, they are nicely landscaped and most of them have ponds in the back yard! It looked wonderful with the snow and ice! Like a storybook! But was I was driving I realized since I took all my photo's in Gallitzin I should stay there and find food... so I typed in food in Gallitzin. So when I was in college I worked for a newspaper in a small town called Meadville, PA... now in this town all the restaurants were open M-F during the day... which I thought was stupid because most people work during that time... well, Gallitzin does what I think is logical.
I'll write the reviews and put pictures up later... I'm really behind but I haven't been able to make it to Panera Bread lately and I did write a review on Troegs Brewery in Harrisburg but the server dropped and I lost everything... sigh... so keep a look out!
