Day 3 of this trip and photo tour starts where Day 2 did, at the intersection of PA 150 and I-99/US 220 near Bellefonte.

Still traveling along PA 150.

On PA 26 approaching the US 322 bypass.

On US 322 heading east.

Coming to the end of the four-lane on US 322 east of State College.

Apparently there must be a problem with tailgating and rear-end collisions here.

Now heading west on US 322 back toward State College.

Let's take the business route through downtown.

The next several photos are from the meet tour. This is the I-99 bridge across PA 550.

A look at the pyrite (acid rock) cut on I-99, where work is underway to cover the exposed acid rock.

Looking up at northbound I-99.

Not sure I'd want to swim in this water, or drink it, since it's drainage from the acid rock cut.

The I-99 bridge over PA 550.

A view of the mountains from Skytop, and old US 220/US 322.

Looking north on I-99 at the old US 322 overpass and the acid rock cut on the left.

A look at southbound I-99.

A Pennsylvania SR reference marker.

This is heading out of State College on Business US 322.

Heading south on I-99 approaching the pyrite cut.

This is a ground-level view of the photo seen earlier of southbound I-99.

Approaching the split of US 220/I-99 and US 322.

Leaving I-99 here.

Old button copy sign on the connector from I-99 to US 22.

On US 22 heading west, this section still has some older button copy remaining.

Remember the railroad photo from the day prior? This day there was a forest fire burning along the railroad track and hillside.

Vehicles were pulling off to get photos of the fire.

I wasn't sure who "Prince Gallitzin" was so I looked it up. He was a Catholic priest who was called "The Apostle of the Alleghenies" and was (and still is) known locally as Prince Gallitzin. See for more info. The town of Gallitzin is also named for him.
