Leaving Arlo's, I blasted north on Route 171, riding the high country of Pennsylvania's northeast corner to Lanesboro, population 506. Lanesboro is home to the massive Starrucca Viaduct. Built in 1848, it is 1,040 feet long, 100 feet high and 25 feet wide. Parking at minimalist Luciana Park, I enjoyed quiet solitude, a cascading stream and views of the viaduct dwarfing the nearby houses and trees. From Lanesboro, on roads my daughter Shannon once described as "riding on cow paths," I entered the hinterlands of the northeast corner. Bouncing along on State Route 1011 to 1009, I rumbled by streams, farms and an occasional backwoods home. At Starrucca, I took State Route 4012 east, which is even more rustic and challenging. Glad that I had filled my tank earlier, and that my Nomad was dependable, I rolled along watching out for the ever-present deer.
