The dream has become a reality and the new welcome center will hold it's official ribbon cutting in the morning. It will be a big deal, with government officials all the way to Gov. Ed Rendell attending. Of course, that means I will also be attending to photograph the event and write up an article about the speeches.
The hope is to alieve some of the traffic and give visitors a place to pull off and look for the elk without blocking the highway, trespassing on private property and many other ugly behaviours that have caused most long-time residents to have a slightly skewed feeling towards their famous residents.
