Yes, there is smaller statue of liberty on an old bridge support on the Susquehanna. I understand some private individual took it upon himself to place it there http://www.weirdus.com/states/pennsylvania/roadside_oddities/lady_libert y/

Another view. One annoying thing about it is that it is really hard to get a good picture of it with a 200 mm lens unless you trespass or kayak closer,as far as I have been able to determine.

The article agrees with my assessment. And adds that the statue is 25 feet tall!

I didn't know about Roadside Oddities. I usually use Roadside America.

Thanks. :-)

I was only familiar with Roadside America. It's great to hear about a
similar site. Looks like you got the best photos possible, Tom!

I've seen the Dauphin Narrows SoL. That's my dad's family's neck of
the woods, Perry County.  I recall driving along US11/15 in a dead
stopped bumper-to bumper traffic jam by Dauphin, and the Amish
horsebuggies passing us in their own lane.

Oh, and of course there's a geocache there.  I mean right there, by
the statue. http://coord.info/GC3MD2Z

I won't be kayaking to it anytime soon. My ability is not at that level. By the way those are NOT my kayaks in the picture. Didn't go out that day, and mine is a Advanced Elements Convertible Inflatable which has yet to see any action this year :-(

Two of the four other hikers we saw during the couple hours we were there.

Heather is my spotter. I would have missed this.

In this case I pointed this moth out or HEather might have stepped on it.

Looks like a great day. You got some lovely pictures. I don't think I would have recognize that as a moth.

What a gorgeous place! The caterpillar and the moth are amazing,
unlike any I've seen. I'm blown away by how leaf-like the moth is.
Talk about adaptation!

Thanks for a grand ramble Tom

{Photography.22.2254}: Tom Coleman {tomcoleman} Tue, 09 Sep 2014 21:57:00 EDT (HTML)

THanks, ladies. I might have not recognized the moth either, except I saw it flutter and land there on her side of the path.
