Alleghany State Park, more and drive back to Lockport

Mary Ann and I had breafast in our room and then we discussed what do do with our day.  Our choices were to start out the day aet either the Indian museum in Salamanca or to go into Allegany State Park for a couple of hours. We decided to drive towards Salamanca and decide along the way.  While we were driving, the sun came out and we decided the park would be the best choice.  We stopped on the reservation to get gas.

Once inside the park we went to the administration building.
 We checked out the gift store and I quickly went through the museum.  We looked at a take out menu for THE PARK RESTAURANT and decided to come back later for lunch.
We drove around the lake and went into the Red House Store.

We returned to the administration building to have lunch.   The Park Restaurant is upstairs. It is very nice and service was great.  I had the fish sandwich and fresh cut fries.

Our first stop on the way back up north was south of Little Valley where we visited the UDDERLY TOPNOTCH GOAT FARM.  The owners were very friendly and glad to show us around and tell us about their experiences.

On the way back to Erie County, we drove all back roads and went through several small villages or hamlets.  In the hamlet of   West Falls we saw this interesting place.

For supper, we stopped at Pautlers.  I remembered a great burger I had there last year.  However things have changed and the burgers we had were  very mediocre.

We did not stop in the village of East Otto, but I noticed several interesting old empty buildings and I hope to return some day.
