Grist for the Park Quest Mill


That's what they make here at Susquehanna State Park at a beautiful four-story mill along the river.


This is park 13 of the Park Quest 24/7, a personal challenge to visit 24 state parks selected by the state for highlighting this summer, in seven days.

I am one park behind schedule, but making up some time.


Despite the rain, two families of anglers are trying their luck at the Lapidum boat ramp. They look wetter than the fish.

I get a bag of cornmeal from the park staff for completing the Quest.

"Pancakes," I say.

"Try making corn muffins," suggests a staffer.

I will. On Wednesday. For my first post-Quest breakfast.

Speaking of fishing, Elk Neck State Park and its fishing challenge is next.
