Every now and then, we receive an e-mail asking a question on a particular topic. Today, I received an e-mail asking about US 40 in Pennsylvania. The writer from Ohio asked:
As a child back around 1950, my family traveled Rt 40 every year. I remembered on top of one mt. was a typical Restaurant and gas station, but where you parked across the road up on a stone wall was a cage with a black bear, that I though stood 18 ft tall. I never got this out of my mind until later I realized black bears are not that big. I wondered if you had heard of this - and if you might have a picture of it.The only place I can think of is the top of Summit Mountain (Mount Summit) just east of Uniontown - but I don't know. If anyone has an idea, please let me know and I will let the gentleman know!
