A Week in the Bus (Allegany State Park trip – Part Ia)

I had mentioned in my first post about our trip to the Red House area of Allegany State Park that we had encountered Gerald Kirk, the man who has a nearly 11 foot long model of the  U.S.S. Boston (CAG-I), and how I’d post pictures.  I just remembered, so here are some!
