Back From Lancaster County

Where we stayed at the Harvest Drive Family Inn, overlooking an Amish farm, and visited Ephrata Cloister, founded by an Anabaptist celibate, Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery, America's oldest, the Lil’ Country Store and Miniature Horse Farm, Lapp Valley Farm Dairy & Ice Cream, and Kreider Farms, to learn about agriculture both ancient and modern, Hayloft Candles, Root's Country Market and Auction and Bird-in-Hand Farmers Market, to see market forces in action, the National Constitution Center and the Liberty Bell for some nationalist propaganda, the National Civil War Museum for a corrective, National Watch & Clock Museum for a truly timeless experience, and finally to Hersheypark, where my daughter made me accompany her on horrifying roller coasters reminiscent of the Euthanasia Coaster, far cries from the now-tame Sooperdooperlooper, "[t]he first looping roller coaster on the East Coast," which I remember from my last visit to the park, back in the early '80s.
