Frey Lumber & Pallet

This past weekend, my family and I visited my Pennsylvania family for my cousins graduation party.

We arrived early Friday afternoon, so I used that time to go to Frey Lumber and Pallet in Smithfield, PA (my cousins’s husbands business) to snap some photos around the mill for use on the new website I will be developing for them in the near future.

This was my first time visiting a lumber mill, and I must say, lumber mills are very loud and very dusty!

I also didn’t think about the fact that there would be saw dust flying everything, getting all over me and my camera equipment. I had to do a thorough cleaning of my camera after I was done, otherwise, there was no way I would have been able to switch lenses without saw dust getting into the camera.

The first photo is a 9 shot panorama of the entire lumber mill. Click on it to open a larger version of it.

Helltown Brewing

I visited Helltown Brewing a couple weekends ago shortly after arriving in Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania to visit family.

I had been waiting for this since earlier this year when my cousin sent my parents home with a growler of their Rapture IPA for me to try.

I ended up getting a growler of their Idle Hands Double IPA. Yes, it was AWESOME!

I snapped some photos of the facility while we were there sampling all of their beers.

Some sherry barrels imported from France were sitting on stands in the back of the facility. They weren’t sure what they were going to use them for though.
