Being that I am away from my family the majority of the time, unfortunately (I wish I could take them everywhere with me), I usually spend around a months time at home during the Christmas Season. Therefore, when someone in my family needed some help, I flew up to small town Meadville, Pennsylvania. Though it was just a three day trip, I knew some natural beauty was to be found there and that I could finall see where my grandfather was born and grew up. So with only really one free day, we went and explored northern nature, frozen lakes and made snow angels. The area was silent, peaceful, and slow; only the howl of the wind and tires on snow could be heard.
